Subject: [PATCH v3 -next 1/9] DMA, CMA: fix possible memory leak

We should free memory for bitmap when we find zone mis-match,
otherwise this memory will leak.

Additionally, I copy code comment from PPC KVM's CMA code to inform
why we need to check zone mis-match.

* Note
Minchan suggested to add a tag for the stable, but, I don't do it,
because I found this possibility during code-review and, IMO,
this patch isn't suitable for stable tree.
