    Subject[ 85/95] dm ioctl: do not leak argv if target message only contains whitespace
    3.2-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


    From: Jesper Juhl <>

    commit 902c6a96a7cb9c50d2a8aed1788efad0a5d8f04c upstream.

    If 'argc' is zero we jump to the 'out:' label, but this leaks the
    (unused) memory that 'dm_split_args()' allocated for 'argv' if the
    string being split consisted entirely of whitespace. Jump to the
    'out_argv:' label instead to free up that memory.
