'disk->part_tbl' is malloced in disk_expand_part_tbl() and should be
freed before leaving from the error handling cases. However, current code
does not free this, causing a memory leak. Add disk_replace_part_tbl()
before freeing 'disk'.

I have tested this by randomly causing failures to the target code,
and verified on kmemleak that this memory leak does occur.
