tracing: kernel/trace/trace.c: introduce missing kfree()
Impact: fix memory leak Error handling code following a kzalloc should free the allocated data. The semantic match that finds the problem is as follows: (http://www.emn.fr/x-info/coccinelle/) // <smpl> @r exists@ local idexpression x; statement S; expression E; identifier f,l; position p1,p2; expression *ptr != NULL; @@ ( if ((x@p1 = \(kmalloc\|kzalloc\|kcalloc\)(...)) == NULL) S | x@p1 = \(kmalloc\|kzalloc\|kcalloc\)(...); ... if (x == NULL) S ) <... when != x when != if (...) { <+...x...+> } x->f = E ...> ( return \(0\|<+...x...+>\|ptr\); | return@p2 ...; ) @script:python@ p1 << r.p1; p2 << r.p2; @@ print "* file: %s kmalloc %s return %s" % (p1[0].file,p1[0].line,p2[0].line) // </smpl> Signed-off-by: Julia Lawall <julia@diku.dk> Signed-off-by: Steven Rostedt <srostedt@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>
