Subject: [PATCH 1/3] libkmod: kmod_builtin_get_modinfo: free modinfo on error
Date: Sun, 29 Nov 2020 18:47:35 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

The function allocates array but on building it if get_string()
fails it returns the error leaving the array allocated. The caller
does not care about it in error case either.

Free it to fix memory leak.
