Description Tim Burke 2006-03-31 13:23:15 UTC
kernel/dump.c::device_to_gendisk() is lacking mntput(nd.mnt) on the
exit.  It needs to be added; we are leaking reference here.

Comment 1 Bob Johnson 2006-04-11 16:22:40 UTC
This issue is on Red Hat Engineering's list of planned work items 
for the upcoming Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.4 release.  Engineering 
resources have been assigned and barring unforeseen circumstances, Red 
Hat intends to include this item in the 4.4 release.

Comment 2 Jason Baron 2006-04-21 03:28:27 UTC
committed in stream U4 build 34.21. A test kernel with this patch is available
