Subject: [PATCH] thunderbolt: property: fix a buffer overflow and a missing check

First, no memory is allocated for "property->value.text"; the
following strcpy will lead to a buffer overflow.

Second, no check is enforced for the return value of kzalloc,
which may lead to NULL-pointer dereference.

The patch fixes the two issues.
