Subject[PATCH 2/3] powerpc/pseries/hotplug-cpu: fix memleak in dlpar_cpu_add_by_count
kfree(cpu_drcs) should be called when it fails to perform
of_find_node_by_path("/cpus") in dlpar_cpu_add_by_count,
otherwise there would be a memleak.

In fact, the patch a0ff72f9f5a7 ought to remove kfree in
find_dlpar_cpus_to_add rather than dlpar_cpu_add_by_count.
I guess there might be a mistake when apply that one.

Fixes: a0ff72f9f5a7 ("powerpc/pseries/hotplug-cpu: Remove double free in error path")
