Hi David,
Is this a false positive, maybe having to do with this comment from
fs/fsopen.c: ?

/*
 * Check the state and apply the configuration.  Note that this function is
 * allowed to 'steal' the value by setting param->xxx to NULL before returning.
 */
static int vfs_fsconfig_locked(struct fs_context *fc, int cmd,
			       struct fs_parameter *param)
{


Otherwise please look at the patch below.
Thanks.

Callers to vfs_parse_fs_param() should be responsible for freeing
param.string.

This looks promising to me but I haven't fully tested it yet
because my build/test machine just started acting flaky,
like it is having memory or disk errors.
OTOH, it could have ramifications in other places.
