Subject: [PATCH] Input: joydev - fix dereferencing possible ERR_PTR()

Commit 5702222c9a7a ("Input: joydev - use memdup_user() to duplicate
memory from user-space") changed the kmalloc() and copy_from_user()
with a single call to memdup_user() but wrongly used the same error
path than the old code in which the buffer allocated by kmalloc() was
freed if copy_from_user() failed.

This is of course wrong since if memdup_user() fails, no memory was
allocated and the error in the error-valued pointer should be returned.
