    SubjectPossible memory leak in block/ll_rw_blk.c

    After 2.6.19, kmemleak reports several (few tens) orphan blocks
    allocated in bio_alloc_bioset() via __blk_rq_map_user() in
    block/ll_rq_blk.c. I think these came with commit
    0e75f9063f5c55fb0b0b546a7c356f8ec186825e (support larger block pc
    requests). The allocation backtrace for the "bio" structure is:

    unreferenced object 0xdd9162b0 (size 64):
    [<c018d46f>] kmem_cache_alloc
    [<c0170b2e>] mempool_alloc_slab
    [<c01709cb>] mempool_alloc
    [<c01b7baa>] bio_alloc_bioset
    [<c01b7d0e>] bio_alloc
    [<c01b83f8>] bio_copy_user
    [<c021a380>] __blk_rq_map_user
    [<c021a4ff>] blk_rq_map_user
    [<c021e687>] sg_io
    [<c021ed3e>] scsi_cmd_ioctl
    [<c02bcc13>] sd_ioctl
    [<c021ca65>] blkdev_driver_ioctl
    [<c021cc27>] blkdev_ioctl
    [<c01ba72b>] block_ioctl
    [<c019ea36>] do_ioctl

    Because the above objects cannot be tracked, kmemleak also reports the
    bio_map_data structures allocated in bio_alloc_map_data (called from
    bio_copy_user via the above backtrace).
