Actually, I changed like "err_slave" doing. When it failed to alloc
buffer for slave,
just called vme_slave_free(image[i].slave) and cleanup under the err_slave.

I didn't know about devm_kmalloc(), I will check that function. Thanks!

It would be nice, but when it failed to vme_master_request() and than
go to err_master,
image[i].resource must be NULL. So a NULL exception has occurred in
vme_master_free().

I think vme_master{slave}_free() need to check NULL and it can be
possible to change code as your comment.
please check for me. :-)

kfree() is ok. But vme_master_free() function has an problem as mentioned above.

Thanks for review.
