Conceptually * dma_mask in struct device should not be a pointer. * See http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel.pci/9081 */ pdev->dev.dma_mask = kmalloc(sizeof(*pdev->dev.dma_mask), GFP_KERNEL); Since this leak has existed for more than 8 years and it does not reference other parts of the memory, let kmemleak ignore it, so users don't need to waste time reporting this in the future.
