hdr is being freed and then dereferenced by accessing hdr->pkcs7_msg

Fix this by copying the value returned by PTR_ERR(hdr->pkcs7_msg) into
automatic variable err for its safe use after freeing hdr.

would like to add your Review/Tested-by, the patch can be found in the
linux-integrity next-queued-testing branch.
