net: sysctl: fix a kmemleak warning
the returned buffer of register_sysctl() is stored into net_header variable, but net_header is not used after, and compiler maybe optimise the variable out, and lead kmemleak reported the below warning comm "swapper/0", pid 1, jiffies 4294937448 (age 267.270s) hex dump (first 32 bytes): 90 38 8b 01 c0 ff ff ff 00 00 00 00 01 00 00 00 .8.............. 01 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 ................ backtrace: [<ffffffc00020f134>] create_object+0x10c/0x2a0 [<ffffffc00070ff44>] kmemleak_alloc+0x54/0xa0 [<ffffffc0001fe378>] __kmalloc+0x1f8/0x4f8 [<ffffffc00028e984>] __register_sysctl_table+0x64/0x5a0 [<ffffffc00028eef0>] register_sysctl+0x30/0x40 [<ffffffc00099c304>] net_sysctl_init+0x20/0x58 [<ffffffc000994dd8>] sock_init+0x10/0xb0 [<ffffffc0000842e0>] do_one_initcall+0x90/0x1b8 [<ffffffc000966bac>] kernel_init_freeable+0x218/0x2f0 [<ffffffc00070ed6c>] kernel_init+0x1c/0xe8 [<ffffffc000083bfc>] ret_from_fork+0xc/0x50 [<ffffffffffffffff>] 0xffffffffffffffff <<end check kmemleak>> Before fix, the objdump result on ARM64: 0000000000000000 <net_sysctl_init>: 0: a9be7bfd stp x29, x30, [sp,#-32]! 4: 90000001 adrp x1, 0 <net_sysctl_init> 8: 90000000 adrp x0, 0 <net_sysctl_init> c: 910003fd mov x29, sp 10: 91000021 add x1, x1, #0x0 14: 91000000 add x0, x0, #0x0 18: a90153f3 stp x19, x20, [sp,#16] 1c: 12800174 mov w20, #0xfffffff4 // #-12 20: 94000000 bl 0 <register_sysctl> 24: b4000120 cbz x0, 48 <net_sysctl_init+0x48> 28: 90000013 adrp x19, 0 <net_sysctl_init> 2c: 91000273 add x19, x19, #0x0 30: 9101a260 add x0, x19, #0x68 34: 94000000 bl 0 <register_pernet_subsys> 38: 2a0003f4 mov w20, w0 3c: 35000060 cbnz w0, 48 <net_sysctl_init+0x48> 40: aa1303e0 mov x0, x19 44: 94000000 bl 0 <register_sysctl_root> 48: 2a1403e0 mov w0, w20 4c: a94153f3 ldp x19, x20, [sp,#16] 50: a8c27bfd ldp x29, x30, [sp],#32 54: d65f03c0 ret After: 0000000000000000 <net_sysctl_init>: 0: a9bd7bfd stp x29, x30, [sp,#-48]! 4: 90000000 adrp x0, 0 <net_sysctl_init> 8: 910003fd mov x29, sp c: a90153f3 stp x19, x20, [sp,#16] 10: 90000013 adrp x19, 0 <net_sysctl_init> 14: 91000000 add x0, x0, #0x0 18: 91000273 add x19, x19, #0x0 1c: f90013f5 str x21, [sp,#32] 20: aa1303e1 mov x1, x19 24: 12800175 mov w21, #0xfffffff4 // #-12 28: 94000000 bl 0 <register_sysctl> 2c: f9002260 str x0, [x19,#64] 30: b40001a0 cbz x0, 64 <net_sysctl_init+0x64> 34: 90000014 adrp x20, 0 <net_sysctl_init> 38: 91000294 add x20, x20, #0x0 3c: 9101a280 add x0, x20, #0x68 40: 94000000 bl 0 <register_pernet_subsys> 44: 2a0003f5 mov w21, w0 48: 35000080 cbnz w0, 58 <net_sysctl_init+0x58> 4c: aa1403e0 mov x0, x20 50: 94000000 bl 0 <register_sysctl_root> 54: 14000004 b 64 <net_sysctl_init+0x64> 58: f9402260 ldr x0, [x19,#64] 5c: 94000000 bl 0 <unregister_sysctl_table> 60: f900227f str xzr, [x19,#64] 64: 2a1503e0 mov w0, w21 68: f94013f5 ldr x21, [sp,#32] 6c: a94153f3 ldp x19, x20, [sp,#16] 70: a8c37bfd ldp x29, x30, [sp],#48 74: d65f03c0 ret Add the possible error handle to free the net_header to remove the kmemleak warning Signed-off-by: Li RongQing <roy.qing.li@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: David S.
