Subject: [PATCH v2] ice: Fix memory leak in ice_get_orom_civd_data()

A memory chunk was allocated for orom_data in ice_get_orom_civd_data()
by vzmalloc(). But when ice_read_flash_module() fails, the allocated
memory is not freed, which will lead to a memory leak.

We can fix it by freeing the orom_data when ce_read_flash_module() fails.
