Not a safe change. If you really really really want to change it, it
should be

if (sbi && vc)
vc->vc_sb = NULL;
kfree(sbi);

Then, the maintainer of the code can decide if that's what he meant.

> - printk("FAT: freeing iocharset=%s\n", opts.iocharset);

> + kfree(opts.iocharset);

And, you get a Oops in 'printk' in the bargain. The following is
better, but doesn't really buy you much.

if (opts.iocharset)
printk("FAT: freeing iocharset=%s\n", opts.iocharset);
kfree(opts.iocharset);

^
Missed the closing brace.
