Subject: Re: [PATCH net] rhashtable: fix a memory leak in
 alloc_bucket_locks()

After applied to this patch and ran the reproducer (compiling gcc), had
no bucket_table_alloc in kmemleak report anymore. Hence,

Tested-by: CAI Qian <caiqian@...hat.com>

Funny enough, it now gave me this,

[ 3406.807461] kmemleak: 1353 new suspected memory leaks (see /sys/kernel/debug/kmemleak)
