Subject[PATCH][ipmi-next] ipmi_si: fix memory leak on new_smi
Date
From: Colin Ian King <colin.king@canonical.com>

The error exit path omits kfree'ing the allocated new_smi, causing a memory
leak. Fix this by kfree'ing new_smi.

Detected by CoverityScan, CID#14582571 ("Resource Leak")

Fixes: 7e030d6dff71 ("ipmi: Prefer ACPI system interfaces over SMBIOS ones")
Signed-off-by: Colin Ian King <colin.king@canonical.com>
