I am not sure how adding a hmat_free_structures() call there would be better. If
the name has bee changed to something else in the future, it ends up needing to
change 2 places. It also not save the adding line-count either. I don't see how
to rework the acpi_put_table() logic to be better than adding a label here
either.
