For kzalloc it is right to not emit an error because a failing kzalloc
is already loud on its own. I missed the first error path, that should
get a message, too.

IMHO it's wrong not to add error messages. At one point in time it will
fail and then you're happy if you don't have to add printks all over the
place first to debug that.
