Subject: [PATCH V2] mm/cma: cma_declare_contiguous: correct err handling

In case cma_init_reserved_mem failed, need to free the memblock allocated
by memblock_reserve or memblock_alloc_range.

Quote Catalin's comments:
https://lkml.org/lkml/2019/2/26/482
Kmemleak is supposed to work with the memblock_{alloc,free} pair and it
ignores the memblock_reserve() as a memblock_alloc() implementation
detail. It is, however, tolerant to memblock_free() being called on
a sub-range or just a different range from a previous memblock_alloc().
So the original patch looks fine to me. FWIW:
