    Then, faddr2line pointed out this line,
    
    /*
     * This memory isn't freed when the device is put,
     * I don't have a nice idea for that though.  Conceptually
     * dma_mask in struct device should not be a pointer.
     * See http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel.pci/9081
     */
    pdev->dev.dma_mask =
    	kmalloc(sizeof(*pdev->dev.dma_mask), GFP_KERNEL);
    
    Since this leak has existed for more than 8 years and it does not
    reference other parts of the memory, let kmemleak ignore it, so users
    don't need to waste time reporting this in the future.
