Subjectkmemleak issues in alsa
From
Date
I was getting these kmemleak reports when I build SND_SEQUENCER in
kernel :

unreferenced object 0xf6b0ac00 (size 512):

But when I build SND_SEQUENCER as module these kmemleak issues
disappear.

Then I noticed that issue was in ordering.

When build in kernel flow is like this :

OSS sequencer(alsa_seq_oss_init) -> System (snd_seq_system_client_init)

When build as modules flow is like this :

System(snd_seq_system_client_init) -> OSS sequencer(alsa_seq_oss_init)

So this fixes above kmemleak issues in my case, I hope it will be
helpful :

diff --git a/sound/core/seq/oss/seq_oss.c b/sound/core/seq/oss/seq_oss.c
index f25e3cc..3ddf2c2 100644
