No, I didn't saw any 'reconnect denied' in the test.  The test actually
seems to execute fine, except from the memory leak.

It's very difficult to reproduce this issue, but last time I managed to
get this memory leak to trigger I actually had some debugging code in
drop_inode_snap_realm, something like:

  if (ci->i_head_snapc)
  	printk("i_head_snapc: 0x%px\n", ci->i_head_snapc);

This printk was only executed when the bug triggered (during a
filesystem umount) and the address shown was the same as in the kmemleak
warning.

After spending some time looking, I assumed this to be a missing call to
handle_cap_flush_ack, which would do the i_head_snapc cleanup.

Cheers,
