[dm-devel] [PATCH] dm: memory leak in failed table_load()



Hi Alasdair,

This patch fixes following two problems which occur when "dmsetup load foo"
is executed before the map of the "foo" is created.

  o memory leak.
  o unable to unload the dm_mod module.

Please consider to apply.

How to reproduce the problem:
  # echo "0 10 linear 8:16 0" | dmsetup load foo
  (Need to change "8:16" appropriately.)

Patch for 2.6.14:
