pnp: avoid a small unlikely memory leak in proc_read_escd()
Jesper Juhl [Wed, 17 Oct 2007 06:26:56 +0000 (23:26 -0700)]
There's a small and unlikely memory leak in
drivers/pnp/pnpbios/proc.c::proc_read_escd().  It's inside a sanity check,
so it probably won't trigger often (if at all), however it *is* a potential
leak and it's easy to avoid, so let's just fix it :)
