Subject[PATCH 4.9 047/329] kconfig: Fix expr_free() E_NOT leak
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Ulf Magnusson <ulfalizer@gmail.com>

[ Upstream commit 5b1374b3b3c2fc4f63a398adfa446fb8eff791a4 ]

Only the E_NOT operand and not the E_NOT node itself was freed, due to
accidentally returning too early in expr_free(). Outline of leak:

switch (e->type) {
...
case E_NOT:
expr_free(e->left.expr);
return;
...
}
*Never reached, 'e' leaked*
free(e);

Fix by changing the 'return' to a 'break'.

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

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

Summary after the fix:

LEAK SUMMARY:
definitely lost: 1,608 bytes in 67 blocks
...
