SubjectRe: [PATCH v2] of: fix memory leak related to safe_name()
Sorry, symptoms not solved. According to kmemleak, I have now:

[ 661.323100] kmemleak: 100 new suspected memory leaks (see
/sys/kernel/debug/kmemleak)
[ 1260.226120] kmemleak: 1 new suspected memory leaks (see
/sys/kernel/debug/kmemleak)
