Hi

Label names are used in all sorts of funny ways in the kernel. However
CodingStyle is quite clear on the matter: "Also don't name them after
the goto location like "err_kmalloc_failed:" and if you think about
it, it makes sense. Let's say we add another goto to that label then
the name wouldn't be correct anymore.

err_release and err_unlock would make me happier :)

With that fixed
