Description Tim Burke 2006-03-31 08:23:15 EST
kernel/dump.c::device_to_gendisk() is lacking mntput(nd.mnt) on the
exit.  It needs to be added; we are leaking reference here.

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.
