Fewer jumps are easier to follow in general, so avoiding ones that can
be avoided is helpful.

I'm not buying the argument about more code line changes needed if the
function name changes. It's meaningless.

And if you check the return value of acpi_get_table() for SRAT after
calling acpi_put_table(tbl), you will only need the out_free label, if
I'm not mistaken.
