Subjectpair of alloc_disk()?
Hi,

I cannot find free_disk() or similar function which takes "struct gendisk"
as a parameter and can do the reverse thing what alloc_disk() do.

Could you please give me a hint what would be the correct function call
in the following example in test_exit_module() so the module do not leak?


#include <linux/module.h>
#include <linux/genhd.h>

MODULE_AUTHOR("Márton Németh <nm127@freemail.hu>");
MODULE_DESCRIPTION("Test alloc_disk");
MODULE_LICENSE("GPL");

static struct gendisk *gd_ptr;

static int test_init_module(void)
{
printk(KERN_DEBUG "starting module\n");
gd_ptr = alloc_disk(1);
if (!gd_ptr) {
return -ENOMEM;
}
printk(KERN_DEBUG "gd_ptr after alloc=%p\n", gd_ptr);

return 0;
}

static void test_exit_module(void)
{
printk(KERN_DEBUG "unloading module\n");
/* FIXME: no free_disk(gd_ptr) is available */
}
module_init(test_init_module);
module_exit(test_exit_module);

Regards,

Márton Németh
