ipc ns: fix memory leak (idr)
We have apparently had a memory leak since 7ca7e564e049d8b350ec9d958ff25eaa24226352 "ipc: store ipcs into IDRs" in 2007. The idr of which 3 exist for each ipc namespace is never freed. This patch simply frees them when the ipcns is freed. I don't believe any idr_remove() are done from rcu (and could therefore be delayed until after this idr_destroy()), so the patch should be safe. Some quick testing showed no harm, and the memory leak fixed. Caught by kmemleak. Signed-off-by: Serge E.
