The kfree() function was called in up to two cases by the
roles_init() function during error handling even if the passed variable
contained a null pointer.

* Adjust a jump target according to the Linux coding style convention.

* Delete an initialisation for the variable "key" at the beginning
  which became unnecessary with this refactoring.

Dropped due to unnecessary code churn with no significant advantage.
