The event_cb->dev_name is not freed when freeing event_cb,
and this causes a memory leak.

Fixes: a753e53d517b ("eal: add device event monitor framework")

After you check, don't you think the memory leak would not occur in 
rte_dev_event_callback_register when free event_cb? And if you have find 
other same problem, suggest to fix it wholly by this good chance. Thanks.

int
rte_dev_event_callback_register(const char *device_name,
                 rte_dev_event_cb_fn cb_fn,
                 void *cb_arg)
{

error:
     free(event_cb);
     rte_spinlock_unlock(&dev_event_lock);
     return ret;

}

Yes, I've confirmed that it's not necessary. The 'event_cb->dev_name' is not allocated
memory on error path in rte_dev_event_callback_register(). But I find the return value
is wrong, when the callback is already exist, will include it in next version.

The similar bugs I found in other codes will be fixed in another patches.

Thanks,
Yunjian

No need for the check, free handles a NULL pointer just fine.

Please, could you update your series/patches status in patchwork?
I am a bit lost at what is superseded or not.


Thanks.

Thanks for your suggestion, will send the v4 later.

We have been doing this kind of cleanup with Thomas, Ferruh and other
maintainers for some time but this does not scale.
We waste time at figuring out which revision of patches is relevant,
or a duplicate, or a mistake...

I'll do it this time (again), but please register to patchwork and
handle this for your next patches.
Thanks.
