The kzalloc call can return null with the GFP_KERNEL flag so
add a null check and exit via a new error exit label. Use the
same exit error label for another error path too.

Addresses-Coverity: ("Dereference null return value")

This is clearly a code migration bug in 

commit 251c85bd106099e6f388a89e88e12d14de2c9cda
Author: Sumit Garg <sumit.garg@linaro.org>

    KEYS: trusted: Add generic trusted keys framework

Which has for addition to trusted_core.c:

+static struct trusted_key_payload *trusted_payload_alloc(struct key
*key)
+{
+       struct trusted_key_payload *p = NULL;
+       int ret;
+
+       ret = key_payload_reserve(key, sizeof(*p));
+       if (ret < 0)
+               return p;
+       p = kzalloc(sizeof(*p), GFP_KERNEL);
+
+       p->migratable = migratable;
+
+       return p;
+}

And for trusted_tpm1.c:

-static struct trusted_key_payload *trusted_payload_alloc(struct key
*key)
-{
-       struct trusted_key_payload *p = NULL;
-       int ret;
-
-       ret = key_payload_reserve(key, sizeof *p);
-       if (ret < 0)
-               return p;
-       p = kzalloc(sizeof *p, GFP_KERNEL);
-       if (p)
-               p->migratable = 1; /* migratable by default */
-       return p;
-}

The trusted_tpm1.c code was correct and we got this bug introduced by
what should have been a simple cut and paste ... how did that happen? 
And therefore, how safe is the rest of the extraction into
trusted_core.c?

fortunately it gets caught by static analysis, but it does make me also
concerned about what else has changed and how this gets through review.

Ah, it's my bad. Thanks for fixing this issue.

It was a little more than just cut and paste where I did generalized
"migratable" flag to be provided by the corresponding trust source's
ops struct.

I agree that extraction into trusted_core.c was a complex change but
this patch has been up for review for almost 2 years [1]. And
extensive testing can't catch this sort of bug as allocation wouldn't
normally fail.
