Subject[PATCH] rdma/siw: Fix a use after free in siw_alloc_mr
Our code analyzer reported a uaf.

In siw_alloc_mr, it calls siw_mr_add_mem(mr,..). In the implementation
of siw_mr_add_mem(), mem is assigned to mr->mem and then mem is freed
via kfree(mem) if xa_alloc_cyclic() failed. Here, mr->mem still point
to a freed object. After, the execution continue up to the err_out branch
of siw_alloc_mr, and the freed mr->mem is used in siw_mr_drop_mem(mr).

Fixes: 2251334dcac9e ("rdma/siw: application buffer management")
