Subject[PATCH 4.9 046/329] kconfig: Fix automatic menu creation mem leak
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Ulf Magnusson <ulfalizer@gmail.com>

[ Upstream commit ae7440ef0c8013d68c00dad6900e7cce5311bb1c ]

expr_trans_compare() always allocates and returns a new expression,
giving the following leak outline:

...
*Allocate*
basedep = expr_trans_compare(basedep, E_UNEQUAL, &symbol_no);
...
for (menu = parent->next; menu; menu = menu->next) {
...
*Copy*
dep2 = expr_copy(basedep);
...
*Free copy*
expr_free(dep2);
}
*basedep lost!*

Fix by freeing 'basedep' after the loop.

Summary from Valgrind on 'menuconfig' (ARCH=x86) before the fix:

LEAK SUMMARY:
definitely lost: 344,376 bytes in 14,349 blocks
...

Summary after the fix:

LEAK SUMMARY:
definitely lost: 44,448 bytes in 1,852 blocks
...
