Did you find this by code inspection or is this provable at runtime
(kmemleak or such)?

Mm... don't think so.

-EINPROGRESS is special, it means something is working on the request
asynchronously here.

I think this memory is freed in tls_decrypt_done():

	kfree(aead_req);

Note that aead_req is the first member of the allocated buffer.
