security: smack: fix memleak in smk_write_rules_list()
The smack_parsed_rule structure is allocated. If a rule is successfully installed then the last reference to the object is lost. This patch fixes this leak. Moreover smack_parsed_rule is allocated on stack because it no longer needed ofter smk_write_rules_list() is finished. Signed-off-by: Tomasz Stanislawski <t.stanislaws@samsung.com>
