[cfe-dev] Static analyzer: possible memory leak false positive?

Hi all,

Before spamming Bugzilla, I'd like an opinion on this possible false positive in the static analyzer.

See http://scan.freebsd.your.org/freebsd-head/bin.df/2012-09-12-amd64/report-WwB2qk.html#EndPath

The analyzer is complaining about a memory leak of mntbuf two lines before the end of the main() function.

I'm not sure this is actually a false positive since it relies on the implicit behavior that the OS reclaims the memory regardless, but the warning does seem of minor value.

Kind regards,
Erik Cederstrand
