That looks straight-forward enough, p9pdu_vreadf does p9stat_free on
error then v9fs_dir_readdir does the same ; there is nothing else that
could return an error without going through the first free so we could
just remove the later one...

There are a couple other users of the 'S' pdu read (that reads the stat
struct and frees it on error), so it's probably best to keep the current
behaviour as far as this is concerned, what we could do though is make
the free function idempotent (write NULLs in the freed fields), but I do
not see this being done often, do you know what the policy is about
this kind of pattern nowadays?

The struct is cleanly zeroed before being read so there is no risk of
double-frees between iterations so zeroing pointers is not strictly
required, but it does make things safer in general.
