Ugh damn this. Apparently this "fix" has made the news:

https://news.softpedia.com/news/canonical-releases-major-kernel-security-update-for-ubuntu-19-10-and-18-04-lts-528433.shtml

https://nvd.nist.gov/vuln/detail/CVE-2019-19076

and (a) it would be a damn control path, root-only memory leak, but
also (b) upon closer inspection there is no leak here at all!

We don't need to delete the entry if we failed to allocate it...
The delete path is in case the entry for the handle is changed, but
if we're trying to allocate one anew there can't be any on the list.

Congratulations to whoever classified this as a security fix.

I will send a revert, and go ask for the CVE to be marked invalid.
What a waste of time. I should have paid more attention :/
