Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL for 4.14 064/110] perf/x86/intel: Plug memory leak in intel_pmu_init()
Date
From: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de>

[ Upstream commit 7ad1437d6ace0e450a6c1167720608ad660b191d ]

A recent commit introduced an extra merge_attr() call in the skylake
branch, which causes a memory leak.

Store the pointer to the extra allocated memory and free it at the end of
the function.

Fixes: a5df70c354c2 ("perf/x86: Only show format attributes when supported")
