Clang static analysis reports this double free error

security/selinux/ss/conditional.c:139:2: warning: Attempt to free released memory [unix.Malloc]
        kfree(node->expr.nodes);
        ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When cond_read_node fails, it calls cond_node_destroy which frees the
node but does not poison the entry in the node list.  So when it
returns to its caller cond_read_list, cond_read_list deletes the
partial list.  The latest entry in the list will be deleted twice.

So instead of freeing the node in cond_read_node, let list freeing in
code_read_list handle the freeing the problem node along with all of the
earlier nodes.

Because cond_read_node no longer does any error handling, the goto's
the error case are redundant.  Instead just return the error code.

Fixes: 60abd3181db2 ("selinux: convert cond_list to array")

Merged into selinux/stable-5.8 with a better subject line.  Thanks for
catching this and submitting the fix.  Assuming everything goes well
I'll send this up to Linus later this week.

It might be nice to do a follow-up patch for selinux/next which folds
cond_node_destroy() into cond_list_destroy() as there is no longer a
need for that code to be in a separate function.
