Subject: [PATCH v3] pstore/platform: Add check for kstrdup

Add check for the return value of kstrdup() and return the error
if it fails in order to avoid NULL pointer dereference.

Signed-off-by: Jiasheng Jiang <jiasheng@...as.ac.cn>

1. Add kfree() in the later error handling.

v1 -> v2:

1. Allocate a copy earlier.
