The memtype seq_file iterator allocates a buffer in the ->start and
->next functions and frees it in the ->show function.
The preferred handling for such resources is to free them in the
subsequent ->next or ->stop function call.

Since Commit 1f4aace60b0e ("fs/seq_file.c: simplify seq_file iteration
code and interface") there is no guarantee that ->show will be called
after ->next, so this function can now leak memory.

So move the freeing of the buffer to ->next and ->stop.

Fixes: 1f4aace60b0e ("fs/seq_file.c: simplify seq_file iteration code and interface")
