Subject: [PATCH 2/3] net-PPP: Less function calls in mppe_alloc() after error
 detection

>From 06c1a0fff81142dfa6d933479e17bb1b45ab9dc7 Mon Sep 17 00:00:00 2001
From: Markus Elfring <elfring@...rs.sourceforge.net>

The functions crypto_free_blkcipher((), crypto_free_hash() and kfree() could be
called in some cases by the mppe_alloc() function during error handling even
if the passed data structure element contained still a null pointer.
This implementation detail could be improved by adjustments for jump labels.
