ramfs: fix memleak on no-mmu arch
On no-mmu arch, there is a memleak during shmem test. The cause of this memleak is ramfs_nommu_expand_for_mapping() added page refcount to 2 which makes iput() can't free that pages. The simple test file is like this: int main(void) { int i; key_t k = ftok("/etc", 42); for ( i=0; i<100; ++i) { int id = shmget(k, 10000, 0644|IPC_CREAT); if (id == -1) { printf("shmget error\n"); } if(shmctl(id, IPC_RMID, NULL ) == -1) { printf("shm rm error\n"); return -1; } } printf("run ok...\n"); return 0; } And the result: root:/> free total used free shared buffers Mem: 60320 17912 42408 0 0 -/+ buffers: 17912 42408 root:/> shmem run ok... root:/> free total used free shared buffers Mem: 60320 19096 41224 0 0 -/+ buffers: 19096 41224 root:/> shmem run ok... root:/> free total used free shared buffers Mem: 60320 20296 40024 0 0 -/+ buffers: 20296 40024 ...
