Subject[PATCH] pstore/ram: Fix memory leak in persistent_ram_new
Date
In the implementation of persistent_ram_new(), if the allocation for prz
fails, "label" should be released as part of error handling. Release the
label via kfree().

Fixes: 8cf5aff89e59 ("staging: android: persistent_ram: Introduce persistent_ram_new()")
