Subject[PATCH 4.9 70/92] cw1200: Dont leak memory if krealloc failes
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Johannes Thumshirn <jthumshirn@suse.de>

commit 9afdd6128c39f42398041bb2e017d8df0dcebcd1 upstream.

The call to krealloc() in wsm_buf_reserve() directly assigns the newly
returned memory to buf->begin. This is all fine except when krealloc()
failes we loose the ability to free the old memory pointed to by
buf->begin. If we just create a temporary variable to assign memory to
and assign the memory to it we can mitigate the memory leak.
