Subject: [PATCH 5/6] kconfig: Don't leak help strings during parsing

This is just for completeness to get rid of the last memory leak
currently generated during parsing for ARCH=x86. The symbol
DVB_NETUP_UNIDVB in drivers/media/pci/netup_unidvb/Kconfig currently has
two help strings, and we leak the first one.

Summary from Valgrind on 'menuconfig' (ARCH=x86) before the fix:

	LEAK SUMMARY:
	   definitely lost: 344,440 bytes in 14,350 blocks
	   ...

Summary after the fix:

	LEAK SUMMARY:
	   definitely lost: 344,376 bytes in 14,349 blocks
	   ...
