Hash Suite for Android: free password hash cracker in your pocket
[<prev] [next>] [thread-next>] [day] [month] [year] [list]

Subject: [PATCH] x86: Fix io_bitmap_ptr memory leak on copy_process()

x86 copy_thread() allocates io_bitmap_ptr area in child's thread_struct
when the parent has TIF_IO_BITMAP flag via ioperm().
And in this case, if copy_process() terminates with errors
after copy_thread() success,
this io_bitmap_ptr area is being left without kfree().
