Subject[PATCH v2] iio/adjd_s311: Fix potential memory leak in adjd_s311_update_scan_mode()
Date
Do not leak memory by updating pointer with potentially NULL realloc return value.
There is no need to preserve data in the buffer,
so replace krealloc() by kfree()-kmalloc() pair.

Found by Linux Driver Verification project (linuxtesting.org).
