Subject: [PATCH] net/mlx4_core: fix a memory leak bug.

From: Qiushi Wu <>

In function mlx4_opreq_action(), pointer "mailbox" is not released,
when mlx4_cmd_box() return and error, causing a memory leak bug.
Fix this issue by going to "out" label, mlx4_free_cmd_mailbox() can
free this pointer.

Fixes: fe6f700d6cbb7 ("Respond to operation request by firmware")
