Description Warren Togami 2005-06-17 19:10:33 EDT
Markus Lidel (upstream I2O driver maintainer) said that coughlan@redhat.com
discovered a serious memory leak in the i2o_config driver, where if you
constantly monitor your RAID arrays using I2O raidutils, you will OOM and kill
your system.

Markus provided the attached patch against kernel-2.6.9-11.14.EL.  I personally
wont have a chance to test this patch until I am back home on June 28th.

Apparently this is part of a larger batch of I2O bug fixes currently in akpm's tree.

the patch has duplicate label `sg_list_cleanup'. could you clean up?
