Subject[PATCH v2] acer-wmi: fix memory leaks in wmab_execute error path
From
Date
When acpi_evaluate_object() is passed ACPI_ALLOCATE_BUFFER,
the caller must kfree the returned buffer if AE_OK is returned.

Call Trace:
wmab_execute
-> wmi_evaluate_method
-> acpi_evaluate_object

Thus if callers of wmab_execute() pass ACPI_ALLOCATE_BUFFER,
the return buffer must be kfreed if wmab_execute return AE_OK.
