DLM : fix memory leak in dlm_add_member
Last modified: 2008-05-21 10:59:45 EDT
Description of problem:
There's a memory leak in fs/dlm/member.c::dlm_add_member().
If "dlm_node_weight(ls->ls_name, nodeid)" returns < 0, then
we'll return without freeing the memory allocated to the (at
that point yet unused) 'memb'.
This patch frees the allocated memory in that case and thus
avoids the leak.
