lockd freeing memory it doesn't own?

Hi Olaf,

I'm locking at fs/lockd/clntproc.c and its use of system_utsname.

Specifically, in clntproc.c, there is some code to set
lock->caller and alock->caller to system_utsname. I can't figure
out where these things are getting used. Ultimately, though,
nlmclnt_freegrantargs calls kfree on it.

Could you help me understand this "caller" field and the memory
management that is going on here?
