The memory is still not released on error and this is not the only one
place in that code which doesn't release memory on error.

All this code is executed only once during early kernel boot, perhaps
not really worthwhile fixing it or at least this should be done properly.

* Return: pointer to the allocated memory or %NULL in case of error
