Subject[PATCH 4.10 163/167] module: fix memory leak on early load_module() failures
Date
4.10-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Luis R. Rodriguez <mcgrof@kernel.org>

commit a5544880aff90baf1bd4443ac7ff65182213ffcd upstream.

While looking for early possible module loading failures I was
able to reproduce a memory leak possible with kmemleak. There
are a few rare ways to trigger a failure:

o we've run into a failure while processing kernel parameters
(parse_args() returns an error)
o mod_sysfs_setup() fails
o we're a live patch module and copy_module_elf() fails

Chances of running into this issue is really low.

kmemleak splat:

unreferenced object 0xffff9f2c4ada1b00 (size 32):
comm "kworker/u16:4", pid 82, jiffies 4294897636 (age 681.816s)
