hmm? I can't see it freed anywhere.

Considering you reset target[]->type to MC_TARGET_NONE, do you intended to
reuse targe[] while walking the page table ?
If so, how about adding a new member(struct mc_target *targe) to move_charge_struct,
and allocate/free it at mem_cgroup_move_charge() ?

Thanks,
