Subject: [PATCH] drm/radeon: fix a bogus kfree

commit a6b7e1a02b77ab8fe8775d20a88c53d8ba55482e upstream.

parser->chunks[.].kpage[.] is not always kmalloc-ed
by the parser initialization, so parser_fini should
not try to kfree it if it didn't allocate it.

This patch fixes a kernel oops that can be provoked
in UMS mode.
