[PATCH 5/6] x86/efi: Free allocated memory if remap fails

From: Sai Praneeth Prakhya

efi_memmap_alloc(), as the name suggests, allocates memory for a new efi
memory map. It's referenced from couple of places, namely,
efi_arch_mem_reserve() and efi_free_boot_services(). These callers,
after allocating memory, remap it for further use. As usual, a routine
check is performed to confirm successful remap. If the remap fails,
ideally, the allocated memory should be freed but presently we just
return without freeing it up. Hence, fix this bug by freeing the memory
with efi_memmap_free().

Also, efi_fake_memmap() references efi_memmap_alloc() but it frees
memory correctly using memblock_free(), but replace it with
efi_memmap_free() to maintain consistency, as in, allocate memory with
efi_memmap_alloc() and free memory with efi_memmap_free().

It's a fact that memremap() and early_memremap() might never fail and
this code might never get a chance to run but to maintain good kernel
programming semantics, we might need this patch.
