[PATCH 3.16.y-ckt 36/94] btrfs: fix possible leak in btrfs_ioctl_balance()

3.16.7-ckt20 -stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Christian Engelmayer <cengelma@xxxxxx>

commit 0f89abf56abbd0e1c6e3cef9813e6d9f05383c1e upstream.

Commit 8eb934591f8b ("btrfs: check unsupported filters in balance
arguments") adds a jump to exit label out_bargs in case the argument
check fails. At this point in addition to the bargs memory, the
memory for struct btrfs_balance_control has already been allocated.
Ownership of bctl is passed to btrfs_balance() in the good case,
thus the memory is not freed due to the introduced jump. Make sure
that the memory gets freed in any case as necessary. Detected by
Coverity CID 1328378.
