Okay, I see the reasoning. So during the OP-TEE driver's lifetime, the
RPC shared memory remains allocated. I guess that is done primarily
for performance reasons.

But still it doesn't feel appropriate that we term all RPC shm
allocations as not leaking memory as we might miss obvious ones.

Xiaolei,

Can you once test with CFG_PREALLOC_RPC_CACHE=n while compiling
optee-os and see if the observed memory leak disappears or not?
