* Should not free NULL pointer. If the pointer is NULL as a result of memory allocation (kmalloc()),
only return an error code and don't free (kfree()) a NULL pointer. Even though kfree() won't perform
any operation if NULL is passed, this is not a good practice.
* Don't free NULL pointer "pka: Fix NULL pointer kfree() issue"
* No change in functionality.
* Regression can be considered very low as the pointer won't be kfree()'d only in the case of it
being NULL. This is functionally equivalent to passing NULL pointer to kfree() as no operation will be
performed in this case.
