[PATCH] x86/PCI: fix a memory leak bug




In pcibios_irq_init(), the PCI IRQ routing table 'pirq_table' is firstly
found through pirq_find_routing_table(). If the table is not found and
'CONFIG_PCI_BIOS' is defined, the table is then allocated in
pcibios_get_irq_routing_table() using kmalloc(). In the following
execution, if the I/O APIC is used, this table is actually not used.
However, in that case, the allocated table is not freed, which can lead to
a memory leak bug.

To fix this issue, this patch frees the allocated table if it is not used.
