Subject[PATCH 5.15 111/128] kfence: fix memory leak when cat kfence objects
Date
From: Baokun Li <libaokun1@huawei.com>

commit 0129ab1f268b6cf88825eae819b9b84aa0a85634 upstream.

Hulk robot reported a kmemleak problem:

unreferenced object 0xffff93d1d8cc02e8 (size 248):
comm "cat", pid 23327, jiffies 4624670141 (age 495992.217s)

I find that we can easily reproduce this problem with the following
commands:

cat /sys/kernel/debug/kfence/objects
echo scan > /sys/kernel/debug/kmemleak
cat /sys/kernel/debug/kmemleak

The leaked memory is allocated in the stack below:

do_syscall_64
do_sys_open
do_dentry_open
full_proxy_open
seq_open ---> alloc seq_file
vfs_read
full_proxy_read
seq_read
seq_read_iter
traverse ---> alloc seq_buf

And it should have been released in the following process:

do_syscall_64
syscall_exit_to_user_mode
exit_to_user_mode_prepare
task_work_run
____fput
__fput
full_proxy_release ---> free here

However, the release function corresponding to file_operations is not
implemented in kfence. As a result, a memory leak occurs. Therefore,
the solution to this problem is to implement the corresponding release
function.
