Subject[3.1-rc6] kmalloc(64) leak from IDE
All sorts of fun with 3.1-rc!

On an older x86 box still using the IDE code, I'm seeing a kmalloc(64)
leak (according to slabtop) that basically OOM'd the box in a few days
(640 MB of RAM). This has popped up since 2.6.36, which ran for a long
time on this box with no problems. Issues seen on -rc5, so I rebuilt with
CONFIG_DEBUG_KMEMLEAK on 9d037a777695993ec7437e5f451647dea7919d4c and
/sys/kernel/debug/kmemleak filled up with size 64 traces involving IDE
requests. Every trace seems to contain idedisk_prep_fn():

unreferenced object 0xe30c00c0 (size 64):
comm "md6_raid1", pid 255, jiffies 4294903935 (age 23889.704s)

idedisk_prep_fn() seems to allocate a command and return it as
rq->special, but I'm not following what happens after that.
