Subject: [PATCH ethtool] netlink: fix allocation failure handling in
 dump_features()

On allocation failure, dump_features() would set ret to -ENOMEM but then
return 0 anyway. As there is nothing to free in this case anyway, the
easiest fix is to simply return -ENOMEM rather than jumping to out_free
label - which can be dropped as well as this was its only use.

Fixes: f2c17e107900 ("netlink: add netlink handler for gfeatures (-k)")
