  memory leak in hv_storvsc (3.13.0-63-generic)

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Slab and SUnreclaim values in /proc/meminfo keep increasing. On one
  servers it reached 85% of physical memory after 14 days - but on most
  other servers it increases more slowly. I checked /proc/slabinfo and
  almost all allocations were in kmalloc-512. So I enabled
  "slub_debug=U,kmalloc-512" on one server, and after only 24h of uptime
  11% of the memory was used by kmalloc-512 and unreclaimable. With
  debugging enabled I could see the following in

  521294 storvsc_queuecommand+0x359/0x790 [hv_storvsc]
  age=161922/955116/20882927 pid=1-41545

  All other counters were below 2000. In
  /sys/kernel/slab/kmalloc-512/free_calls I see the following:

  516823 <not-available> age=4315783846 pid=0

  The hv_storvsc module is for Hyper-V. We are (unfortunately) running
  Hyper-V 6.3.9600.16384 with Microsoft System Center 2012 R2 Update
  rollup 3 for all the servers with this issue.

  Kernels are stock linux-image-3.13.0-63-generic, 3.13.0-63.103,
  x86_64, from Ubuntu 14.04 LTS . /proc/version_signature contains:

    Ubuntu 3.13.0-63.103-generic 3.13.11-ckt25

  No output from lspci -vnvn. The problem described above happens on
  both single and multicore virtual machines. CPU in hypervisors are
  E5-2630 v2 @ 2.60GHz. Let me know if you need more info or if I can do
  more debugging.
