If this 'kzalloc()' fails we must free some resources as in all the other
error handling paths of this function.

Fixes: 348048e724a0 ("ice: Implement iidc operations")
Signed-off-by: Christophe JAILLET <>
'event' is allocated and freed just a few lines below. It looks like a
small structure, so maybe a better fix would be to avoid the
kzalloc/kfree and use a local variable instead.
