http://stackoverflow.com – All. Let's suppose that process'A allocate a lot of pages by such as below code. And process'A periodically executes this code so it happens memory leak. // allocates 1Mb for(i=0;i<10;i++) { page_p=alloc_pages(gfp_mask, 8); } BTW, what become of the allocated pages after killing process without free page? Allocated pages are permanently leak? (HowTos)
