    Subject[PATCH v4 03/19] KVM: Don't free new memslot if allocation of said memslot fails
    The two implementations of kvm_arch_create_memslot() in x86 and PPC are
    both good citizens and free up all local resources if creation fails.
    Return immediately (via a superfluous goto) instead of calling

    Note, the call to kvm_free_memslot() is effectively an expensive nop in
    this case as there are no resources to be freed.

    No functional change intended.
