Subject[PATCH] fs: pstore: fix double-free on ramoops_init_przs
According to Coverity scanner (CID 1457526) kfree on ram.c:591 frees
label which has already been freed.

Here's the flow as I have understood (this is my first time reading
pstore's files):

Whenever `persistent_ram_new` fails, it implicitly calls
`persistent_ram_free(prz)` which already does `kfree(prz->label)` and a
`kfree(prz)` consequently.

Removed `kfree(label)` to prevent double-free.
