I have no clue what the problem is nor how to investigate it, and in
fact I strongly suspect that this is either a false positive or a
problem in lower layers - driver core, sysfs etc. so nothing I can help

So until someone comes with an evidence that there is an actual memory
leak in the i2c-i801 driver itself I'm not going to pay any attention
to your report, sorry.
