Bug Description

Memory leak in the inotify_init1 function in fs/notify/inotify/inotify_user.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.37 allows local users to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via vectors involving failed attempts to create files.

Break-Fix: 825f9692fbe417b9fb529477056ba72022847038 a2ae4cc9a16e211c8a128ba10d22a85431f093ab
