I have no problem with that. It's functionally the same, but the object 
file size is smaller and, as you say, it's more standard. Good point, 
thanks.


We are leaking memory in drivers/net/cnic.c::cnic_alloc_uio_rings() if 
either of the calls to dma_alloc_coherent() fail. This patch fixes it by 
freeing both the memory allocated with kzalloc() and memory allocated with 
previous calls to dma_alloc_coherent() when there's a failure.

Thanks to  Joe Perches <joe@...ches.com>  for suggesting a better 
implementation than my initial version.

  compile tested only since I don't have the hardware to do a proper test.
