Description dvdk 2018-09-27 14:31:50 UTC

would you please consider adding a virtual destructor to class clover::kernel::argument?  Currently life-time of kernel::scalar_argument is managed via unique_ptr<argument> i.e. via a pointer to the parent class.  Without virtual destructor in the parent, scalar_argument destructor never runs.  This in turn causes scalar_argument::v to leak its memory.

Details are documented as part of this leela zero bug (which turned out to be the Mesa issue just described):


I also just reported the same issue (and a patch) to Debian:


Adding the virtual destructor fixes the leak for me.  Note that Mesa 18.2 also added the virtual destructor, while the latest 18.1 version still lacks it:


Maybe GCC warning output or some code sanitizers will point out more issues of this kind.

Mesa 18.1.9 was the last release in 18.1.x series [0].

Is there a reason that prevents upgrading to 18.2 series?
Almost all OpenCL related memory leaks were addressed in that release (also in libdrm 2.4.93)

PS: for completeness the commit that addressed this in 18.2 is 2f1ad72ac17268989d4033e8e3f9460c68eae462

Dylan, are there any plans wrt 18.1?
If not, I think this one should be closed as WONTFIX.
Comment 3 Dylan Baker 2018-11-21 22:02:30 UTC
Mesa 18.1 is EOL at this point and there will be no more releases, if you can still reproduce this with 18.2 or current master later please reopen.
