Yes this time I am quite confident here . On This file line no 1177
already freed the allocation of memory ..On the following line if
(params->seq_len) > 0 then memory is allotted but if it is not then
memory allocation remains free only. So here kfree is not required
outside of the if condition. It should be inside the if condition
because for (params->seq_len) > 0 memory is already allotted at line
followed by 1177. Kindly look at it once.

Thanks :-)
