    Subjectlockd freeing memory it doesn't own?
    Hi Olaf,

    I'm locking at fs/lockd/clntproc.c and its use of system_utsname.

    Specifically, in clntproc.c, there is some code to set
    lock->caller and alock->caller to system_utsname. I can't figure
    out where these things are getting used. Ultimately, though,
    nlmclnt_freegrantargs calls kfree on it.

    Could you help me understand this "caller" field and the memory
    management that is going on here?
