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

------------------

From: "Steven Rostedt (Red Hat)" <rostedt@goodmis.org>

commit 60705c89460fdc7227f2d153b68b3f34814738a4 upstream.

Special preds are created when folding a series of preds that
can be done in serial. These are allocated in an ops field of
the pred structure. But they were never freed, causing memory
leaks.

This was discovered using the kmemleak checker:

unreferenced object 0xffff8800797fd5e0 (size 32):
  comm "swapper/0", pid 1, jiffies 4294690605 (age 104.608s)
  hex dump (first 32 bytes):
