Subject[PATCH 4/6] lib/list_sort: test: improve errors handling
Date
From: Artem Bityutskiy <Artem.Bityutskiy@nokia.com>

The 'lib_sort()' test does not free memory if it fails, and it
makes the kernel panic if it cannot allocate memory. This patch
fixes the problem.

This patch also changes several small things:
o use 'list_add()' helper instead of adding manually
o introduce temporary 'el1' variable to avoid ugly and unreadalbe
"if" statement
o make 'head' to be stack variable instead of 'kmalloc()'ed, which
simplifies code a bit

Overall, this patch is of clean-up type.
