In my environment, 0:0:0:0 and 0:0:1:0 are used by SCSI hard disks, 0:0:7:0 is
reserved. 0:0:X:0 (where X = 2-6, 8-15) are unused and reported as memory leak.

After applying http://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/51412/ , above messages
no longer appears. Please apply that patch to 2.6.32-rcX as well as 2.6.31.Y .

Regards.
