Subjectfreeing memory
hi,

i am allocating some 1000 bytes of memory as folows

f_malloc()
{
.....
for (i=1 to 10)
{
size = 1000;
pAddr[i] = (unsigned long) kmalloc(size, GFP_DMA | GFP_BUFFER);
}
...
}
and freeing the allocated memory as follows

f_free()
{
.....
for (i=1 to 10)
{
kfree(pAddr[i]);
}
}
pAddr is defined as 'unsigned long pAddr[10]'

But when f_free executes i ran into problems and computer hangs.
What can be the problem?????
regards,
daljeet.
