I should have caught this, but thanks to the zero day bot, it found it
first:

 kernel/trace/trace_events_filter.c:582:27-31: ERROR: prog_stack is NULL but dereferenced.

I changed the patch with the following:

Subject: [PATCH] tracing: Avoid memory leak in predicate_parse()

In case of errors, predicate_parse() goes to the out_free label
to free memory and to return an error code.

However, predicate_parse() does not free the predicates of the
temporary prog_stack array, thence leaking them.
