Description Xavi Hernandez 2017-01-13 11:04:26 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1412174 +++

Description of problem:

When the setxattr fails for some extended attributes, fuse leaks memory.

This can happen if you try to set 'system.posix_acl_access' but gluster doesn't have acl's enabled.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): mainline

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. gluster volume create test server:/brick
2. mount -t glusterfs server:/test /test
3. touch /test/file
4. for i in {1..100000}; do setfattr -n system.posix_acl_access -v "1" /test/file; done

Actual results:

Doing a state dump, a leak of fuse_state_t structures is seen.

Expected results:

No leak should happen.

Additional info:

It seems that the state is not released after having been allocated if a pre-op check fails.
