Subject[05/11] ecryptfs: use after free
2.6.27-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: Dan Carpenter <error27@gmail.com>

commit ece550f51ba175c14ec3ec047815927d7386ea1f upstream.

The "full_alg_name" variable is used on a couple error paths, so we
shouldn't free it until the end.
