Subject: [PATCH 3/3] kconfig: Fix choice symbol expression leak

When propagating dependencies from parents after parsing, an expression
node is allocated if the parent symbol is a 'choice'. This node was
never freed.

Outline of leak:

	if (sym && sym_is_choice(sym)) {
		...
		*Allocate (in this case only)*
		parentdep = expr_alloc_symbol(sym);
	} else if (parent->prompt)
		parentdep = parent->prompt->visible.expr;
	else
		parentdep = parent->dep;

	for (menu = parent->list; menu; menu = menu->next) {
		...
		*Copy*
		basedep = expr_alloc_and(expr_copy(parentdep), basedep);
		...
	}
	*parentdep lost if the parent is a choice!*

Fix by freeing 'parentdep' after the loop if the parent symbol is a
choice. Note that this only frees the expression node and not the choice
symbol itself.

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

	LEAK SUMMARY:
	   definitely lost: 1,608 bytes in 67 blocks
	   ...

Summary after the fix:

	LEAK SUMMARY:
	   definitely lost: 0 bytes in 0 blocks
	   ...
