Subject[002/116] drivers/scsi/ses.c: eliminate double free
2.6.32-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

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

From: Julia Lawall <julia@diku.dk>

commit 9b3a6549b2602ca30f58715a0071e29f9898cae9 upstream.

The few lines below the kfree of hdr_buf may go to the label err_free
which will also free hdr_buf. The most straightforward solution seems to
be to just move the kfree of hdr_buf after these gotos.

A simplified version of the semantic match that finds this problem is as
follows: (http://coccinelle.lip6.fr/)

// <smpl>
@r@
identifier E;
expression E1;
iterator I;
statement S;
@@

*kfree(E);
... when != E = E1
when != I(E,...) S
when != &E
*kfree(E);
// </smpl>
