Yes, these bugs are suggested by my static analysis tool.

I'm not sure if kfree(jump) will introduce bug. jump is allocated in a for 
loop and has been passed to adapter->jump_tables. input and mask have new
definitions (kzalloc) after this loop, it's reasonable to free them on failure.
But jump is different. Maybe we should not free jump after the loop?

This also makes me confused. It seems that the check against untied is not error
handling code, but there is a kfree(mask) after it. Freeing allocated data on
success is not reasonable.
