Subject[PATCH 3.16 145/346] hostfs: Freeing an ERR_PTR in hostfs_fill_sb_common()
3.16.39-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Dan Carpenter <dan.carpenter@oracle.com>

commit 8a545f185145e3c09348cd74326268ecfc6715a3 upstream.

We can't pass error pointers to kfree() or it causes an oops.

Fixes: 52b209f7b848 ('get rid of hostfs_read_inode()')
