#4908 new defect

Memory leak in ff_img_read_header() with custom io

This patch changed probe_buffer from an array to a pointer allocated with av_realloc(). It was correctly freed at the end of the block. However, that one buried the av_free() call into ffio_rewind_with_probe_data().

Unsurprisingly, a subsequent patch made it so this call is skipped in the case of custom io, so the buffer is never freed. A simple av_free() after the call to avio_seek() on img2dec.c:346 might do the job.

int probe_buffer_size = 2048;
uint8_t *probe_buffer = av_realloc(NULL, probe_buffer_size + AVPROBE_PADDING_SIZE);

// ...

if (s1->flags & AVFMT_FLAG_CUSTOM_IO) {
    // this leaks probe_buffer because av_free() isn't called
    avio_seek(s1->pb, 0, SEEK_SET);
} else
    ffio_rewind_with_probe_data(s1->pb, &probe_buffer, probe_buffer_size);
