Subject[PATCH 4.4 020/160] perf tools: Free temporary sys string in read_event_files()
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Sanskriti Sharma <sansharm@redhat.com>

[ Upstream commit 1e44224fb0528b4c0cc176bde2bb31e9127eb14b ]

For each system in a given pevent, read_event_files() reads in a
temporary 'sys' string. Be sure to free this string before moving onto
to the next system and/or leaving read_event_files().

Fixes the following coverity complaints:

Error: RESOURCE_LEAK (CWE-772):

tools/perf/util/trace-event-read.c:343: overwrite_var: Overwriting
"sys" in "sys = read_string()" leaks the storage that "sys" points to.

tools/perf/util/trace-event-read.c:353: leaked_storage: Variable "sys"
going out of scope leaks the storage it points to.
