Subject: [PATCH ethtool 1/2] fix memory leaks in do_sfeatures()

Memory blocks referenced by new_state and old_state are never freed.
For efeatures there is no need to check pointer as free() can be called
with NULL parameter.

Fixes: 6042804cf6ec ("Change -k/-K options to use ETHTOOL_{G,S}FEATURES")
