mtd: fix memory leaks in phram_setup
Jesper Juhl [Sat, 13 May 2006 23:07:18 +0000 (01:07 +0200)]
There are two code paths in drivers/mtd/devices/phram.c::phram_setup() that
will leak memory.
Memory is allocated to the variable 'name' with kmalloc() by the
parse_name() function, but if we leave by way of the parse_err() macro,
then that memory is never kfree()'d, nor is it ever used with
register_device() so it won't be freed later either - leak.

Found by the Coverity checker as #593 - simple fix below.
