Subject[PATCH 4.4 052/190] ath5k: fix memory leak on buf on failed eeprom read
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Colin Ian King <colin.king@canonical.com>


[ Upstream commit 8fed6823e06e43ee9cf7c0ffecec2f9111ce6201 ]

The AR5K_EEPROM_READ macro returns with -EIO if a read error
occurs causing a memory leak on the allocated buffer buf. Fix
this by explicitly calling ath5k_hw_nvram_read and exiting on
the via the freebuf label that performs the necessary free'ing
of buf when a read error occurs.

Detected by CoverityScan, CID#1248782 ("Resource Leak")
