Julia Lawall - March 29, 2010, 9:39 a.m.
From: Julia Lawall <julia@diku.dk>

The of_iounmap is at the out_unmap label, but at that point up has already
been freed.  The free cannot be moved to the out_unmap label, because that
label is reachable from cases where up should not be freed.  So the call to
of_iounmap is just duplicated, and the goto converted to a return.

A simplified version of the semantic match that finds this problem is as
follows: (http://coccinelle.lip6.fr/)

// <smpl>
@@
expression x,e;
identifier f;
iterator I;
statement S;
@@

*kfree(x);
... when != &x
    when != x = e
    when != I(x,...) S
*x->f
// </smpl>
