Subject: Re: potential memory leak on transaction commit

Hi Zhang,

Sorry for the delay in looking at it.  One thing which is missing from
your patch is a signed-off-by header.  From section 12 of the
Documentation/SubmittingPatches file in the Linux source tree:

>The sign-off is a simple line at the end of the explanation for the
>patch, which certifies that you wrote it or otherwise have the right to
>pass it on as a open-source patch.  The rules are pretty simple: if you

If you could send me an acknowledgement that it would be OK to add a

Signed-off-by: Zhang Huan <>

line to your patch, it would be much appreciated.
