From: Luiz Capitulino <lcapitulino@redhat.com>

In qmp-marshal.c the dealloc visitor calls use the same errp
pointer of the input visitor calls. This means that if any of
the input visitor calls fails, then the dealloc visitor will
return early, before freeing the object's memory.

Here's an example, consider this code:

int qmp_marshal_input_block_passwd(Monitor *mon, const QDict *qdict, QObject **ret)
{
	[...]

    char * device = NULL;
    char * password = NULL;

    mi = qmp_input_visitor_new_strict(QOBJECT(args));
    v = qmp_input_get_visitor(mi);
    visit_type_str(v, &device, "device", errp);
    visit_type_str(v, &password, "password", errp);
    qmp_input_visitor_cleanup(mi);

    if (error_is_set(errp)) {
        goto out;
    }
    qmp_block_passwd(device, password, errp);

out:
    md = qapi_dealloc_visitor_new();
    v = qapi_dealloc_get_visitor(md);
    visit_type_str(v, &device, "device", errp);
    visit_type_str(v, &password, "password", errp);
    qapi_dealloc_visitor_cleanup(md);

	[...]

    return 0;
}

Consider errp != NULL when the out label is reached, we're going
to leak device and password.

This patch fixes this by always passing errp=NULL for dealloc
visitors, meaning that we always try to free them regardless of
any previous failure. The above example would then be:

out:
    md = qapi_dealloc_visitor_new();
    v = qapi_dealloc_get_visitor(md);
    visit_type_str(v, &device, "device", NULL);
    visit_type_str(v, &password, "password", NULL);
    qapi_dealloc_visitor_cleanup(md);
