Commit Message

When kmalloc() fails, tmp_tfm allocated by
crypto_alloc_shash() has not been freed, which
leads to memleak.

Fixes: d46eb3699502b ("evm: crypto hash replaced by shash")
Signed-off-by: Dinghao Liu <dinghao.liu@zju.edu.cn>

Changelog:

v2: - Remove checks against tmp_tfm before freeing.

In the future, please conform to Documentation/process/submitting-
patches.rst: 

  - The body of the explanation, line wrapped at 75 columns, which will
    be copied to the permanent changelog to describe this patch.

In general I agree, but this is a really small, obvious bug fix. 
Assuming Dinghao is fine with my updating the patch description, I'll
fix it.
