In get_file_system(), if strncmp() returns non-zero, then memory pointed by fsName is leaked, which causes memory leak in fs_mount().

Your patch doesn't fix the issue. get_file_system() doesn't free or take ownership of the specified name in either case, nor is it supposed to do so. The leak is in the loop in fs_mount() -- the name simply needs to be freed after the iteration. The free() was just missing in the success case. Fixed in hrev45939. Instead of adding another free(), I removed the existing ones and used a MemoryDeleter, though.

At any rate, thanks for the analysis!
