In i3c_master_getmwl_locked(), the buffer used for the dest payload data is
allocated using kzalloc() in i3c_ccc_cmd_dest_init(). Later on, the length
of the dest payload data is checked against 'sizeof(*mwl)'. If they are not
equal, -EIO is returned to indicate the error. However, the allocated
buffer is not deallocated on this path, leading to a memory leak.

To fix the above issue, free the buffer before returning the error.
