[dm-devel] [PATCH] Fix memory leak in dm_create_persistent() when starting metadata update thread fails.



If, in dm_create_persistent(), the call to 
create_singlethread_workqueue() fails then we'll return without 
freeing the memory allocated to 'ps', thus leaking 
sizeof(struct pstore) bytes.
This patch fixes the leak.
