In rndis_filter_device_add(), 'rndis_device' is allocated through kzalloc()
by invoking get_rndis_device(). In the following execution, if an error
occurs, the execution will go to the 'err_dev_remv' label. However, the
allocated 'rndis_device' is not deallocated, leading to a memory leak bug.

The kfree() is not necessary here. 
Because it is already freed by --
rndis_filter_device_remove() --> netvsc_device_remove() 
--> free_netvsc_device_rcu() --> free_netvsc_device()
--> kfree(nvdev->extension);  //This frees rndis_device.

Thanks,
- Haiyang

The rndis_device is already freed by:

rndis_filter_device_remove
	netvsc_device_remove
		free_netvsc_device_rcu

free_netvsc_device called by rcu

static void free_netvsc_device(struct rcu_head *head)
{
	struct netvsc_device *nvdev
		= container_of(head, struct netvsc_device, rcu);
	int i;

	kfree(nvdev->extension);  << here
