Subject[PATCH 3.18 43/86] hugetlbfs: fix memory leak for resv_map
Date
[ Upstream commit 58b6e5e8f1addd44583d61b0a03c0f5519527e35 ]

When mknod is used to create a block special file in hugetlbfs, it will
allocate an inode and kmalloc a 'struct resv_map' via resv_map_alloc().
inode->i_mapping->private_data will point the newly allocated resv_map.
However, when the device special file is opened bd_acquire() will set
inode->i_mapping to bd_inode->i_mapping. Thus the pointer to the
allocated resv_map is lost and the structure is leaked.

Programs to reproduce:
mount -t hugetlbfs nodev hugetlbfs
mknod hugetlbfs/dev b 0 0
exec 30<> hugetlbfs/dev
umount hugetlbfs/

resv_map structures are only needed for inodes which can have associated
page allocations. To fix the leak, only allocate resv_map for those
inodes which could possibly be associated with page allocations.
