Subject[PATCH][next] NTB: ntb_tool: fix memory leak on 'buf' on error exit path
From: Colin Ian King <>

Currently there is a memory leak on buf when the call to ntb_mw_get_align
fails. Add an exit err label and jump to this so that kfree on buf frees
the memory.

Detected by CoverityScan, CID#1464286 ("Resource leak")

Fixes: d637628ce00c ("NTB: ntb_tool: Add full multi-port NTB API support")
