In nand_scan_bbt(), a temporary buffer 'buf' is allocated through
vmalloc(). However, if check_create() fails, 'buf' is not deallocated,
leading to a memory leak bug. To fix this issue, free 'buf' before
returning the error.

I know it's too late, but calling

	vfree(buf);

here

instead of here would have fixed the leak without the need for an extra
err label.
