ALSA: seq/oss - Fix double-free at error path of snd_seq_oss_open()
The error handling in snd_seq_oss_open() has several bad codes that do dereferecing released pointers and double-free of kmalloc'ed data. The object dp is release in free_devinfo() that is called via private_free callback. The rest shouldn't touch this object any more. The patch changes delete_port() to call kfree() in any case, and gets rid of unnecessary calls of destructors in snd_seq_oss_open(). Fixes CVE-2010-3080.
