    Subject[patch 72/83] PCI: stop leaking slot_name in pci_create_slot
    2.6.27-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


    From: Alex Chiang <>

    commit 3b5dd45e947ecd21491e1658fba7bb4bc4a54995 upstream.

    In pci_create_slot(), the local variable 'slot_name' is allocated by
    make_slot_name(), but never freed. We never use it after passing it to
    the kobject core, so we should free it upon function exit.
