Memory leak ifconfig down / up

I have an openwrt rev16665 with madwifi r3314. I read the ticket #1682 but I continue with same problem. When I do an ifconfig ath0 down; ifconfig ath0 up, it produces a memory leak, concretely 4KB. With the wifi0 interface it doesn't produce the problem.

I thought that the problem was solved in r3299, r3300, and r3301.

Moreover, I try with r4079 and also has the memory leak.

Where the error is? Can anybody help me?

P.D: Sorry for my poor english.

Why in "ath_node_alloc" the memory alloc is doing with kmalloc and in "ath_node_free" free memory is doing with sc_node_free not kfree?

I've observed that the "wlanconfig ath0 destroy" command produces the memory leak, also. So I think that is possible that the new state created in "ieee80211_stop" isn't released properly.
