Subject: [PATCH] perf hist: fix memory leak if histogram entry is reused
Date: Thu, 21 Feb 2019 13:23:06 +0100
Message-ID: <20190221122306.1511-1-jonas.rabenstein@studium.uni-erlangen.de> (raw)

In __hists__add_entry the srcline of the addr_location is duplicated
for the hist_entry. If hists__findnew_entry returns an already existing
hist_entry the srcline has to be freed again as no further reference to
that duplicated srcline would exists anymore.
