Subject[2.5] memleak in load_elf_binary?

I am still playing with improving memleak detector thing from smatch project.

Seems there is a memleak in fs/binfmt_elf.c::load_elf_binary() in current 2.5
If setup_arg_pages() fails (line 638 in my sources) we do return but
not freeing possibly allocated elf_interpreter (line 520) and
allocated elf_phdata (line 500) areas.

Is this looking real? At least it looks real for me (I am trying to get
number of false positives way down).
