SubjectPotential DOS in load_elf_library?
Hi guys, I was looking at the load_elf_library function (fs/binfmt_elf.c) 
in 2.6.10, and noticed the following:

elf_phdata = (struct elf_phdr *) kmalloc(j, GFP_KERNEL);
...
while (elf_phdata->p_type != PT_LOAD) elf_phdata++;
...
kfree(elf_phdata);
Could this be problematic since the pointer being freed might be different
from that returned from kmalloc?
