Subject: [PATCH] mm: kvfree the swap cluster info if the swap file is unsatisfactory
Date: Thu, 31 Aug 2017 16:35:15 -0700
Message-ID: <20170831233515.GR3775@magnolia> (raw)

If initializing a small swap file fails because the swap file has a
problem (holes, etc.) then we need to free the cluster info as part of
cleanup.  Unfortunately a previous patch changed the code to use
kvzalloc but did not change all the vfree calls to use kvfree.

Found by running generic/357 from xfstests.
