*** CID 1444119:  Resource leaks  (RESOURCE_LEAK)
/src/feature/dircommon/consdiff.c: 1392 in consensus_diff_apply()
1386       int r1;
1387       char *result = NULL;
1388       memarea_t *area = memarea_new();
1390       r1 = consensus_compute_digest_as_signed(consensus, consensus_len, &d1);
1391       if (BUG(r1 < 0))
>>>     CID 1444119:  Resource leaks  (RESOURCE_LEAK)
>>>     Variable "area" going out of scope leaks the storage it points to.
1392         return NULL; // LCOV_EXCL_LINE
1394       lines1 = smartlist_new();
1395       lines2 = smartlist_new();
1396       if (consensus_split_lines(lines1, consensus, consensus_len, area) < 0)
1397         goto done;

This looks to be a leak if there is a BUG() condition, and the line is already marked LCOV_EXCL_LINE. Should we mark this as ignored or something in Coverity, or do we want to put cleanup code under that BUG() condition?
