I’ve been playing around with webgpu in firefox recently and I’ve noticed that the memory usage of my system keeps going up while I’m using webgpu features at a rate of around 8 gbs per hour. This memory is not released even if I kill the firefox process and I cannot find any userspace process that owns this memory. The only way to fix it is to reboot the system. I want to know more about this issue and workarounds. Is this a kernel bug, since this isn’t a leak in a userspace process?
I’m using vulkan loader
126.96.36.199, kernel version
5.11.21 with an amd card and mesa drivers and latest nightly firefox.
