ACPI: pdc init related memory leak with physical CPU hotplug
Pallipadi, Venkatesh [Sat, 20 Jun 2009 00:14:59 +0000 (17:14 -0700)]
arch_acpi_processor_cleanup_pdc() in x86 and ia64 results in memory allocated
for _PDC objects that is never freed and will cause memory leak in case of
physical CPU remove and add. Patch fixes the memory leak by freeing the
objects soon after _PDC is evaluated.
