Subject[ 025/184] coredump: prevent double-free on an error path in
2.6.32-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
core dumper

From: Denys Vlasenko <vda.linux@googlemail.com>

commit f34f9d186df35e5c39163444c43b4fc6255e39c5 upstream.

In !CORE_DUMP_USE_REGSET case, if elf_note_info_init fails to allocate
memory for info->fields, it frees already allocated stuff and returns
error to its caller, fill_note_info. Which in turn returns error to its
caller, elf_core_dump. Which jumps to cleanup label and calls
free_note_info, which will happily try to free all info->fields again.
BOOM.

This is the fix.
