SubjectRe: [PATCH] drivers/acpi: fix memory leak in acpi_device_set_id

There are several recent changes to this code that remove this leak.
The current acpi-test version:

http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/lenb/linux-acpi-2.6.git;a=blob;f=drivers/acpi/scan.c;h=e218ec5c6be046171e08a0f2d95a751aee2a9aec;hb=test

does not have the leak, as far as I can tell, because it doesn't have
the cid_list kmalloc().

If it's a serious issue, your patch might be appropriate for -stable,
but I don't think we'll need it in 2.6.32.
