Indeed, this is definitely a leak here.

Normally I think resources would be cleaned up in the fail path in a
situation like this.

That would then make sure that all paths out of this loop will free on
error.

If buf is null, kfree(null) is a valid noop call, so it will not
adversely affect the kzalloc() fail path.

Given that, I would suspect that a cleaner fix is to move the kfree()
from after " if (!buf->va) { " to immediately after the fail label so
that both dma_alloc_attrs() and ida_alloc_min() failures are cleaned up
in the same way by the same error path.

That way, if anyone later adds another operation in this loop, it won't
get missed and will also clean up correctly.
