Subject: [PATCH] storvsc: fix memory leak on ring buffer busy

From: Long Li <>

When storvsc is sending I/O to Hyper-v, it may allocate a bigger buffer
descriptor for large data payload that can't fit into a pre-allocated
buffer descriptor. This bigger buffer is freed on return path.

If I/O request to Hyper-v fails due to ring buffer busy, the storvsc allocated
buffer descriptor should also be freed.
