Subject[PATCH] mptctl.c memory leak on failure
Hi,

Please consider applying this patch. And I got confused by the
kmalloc and the comment: the buffer is used for DMA but the kmalloc doesn't
has GFP_DMA, maybe I'm missing something here, its about time for me to
sleep 8) but if it doesn't needs DMA you should consider using vmalloc and
you'll get rid of the 32 pages limitation, like I did for wanrouter that
used kmalloc but didn't needed DMA, so I've changed it to vmalloc as per
Alan's cluebating^Wsuggestion at the time 8)
