This is better done without "goto" in general.

The other patch 2/2/ adds one more "we need to exit from the middle
of the flow" and makes it look handier to add an exit label here,
but it would be even better to express the logic of that patch as a
normal cascade of if/else if/..., which is small enough and we do
not need the "leave:" label.

Linux kernel developers would disagree. In C 'goto' is quite of then
the only sane option, and you can see 'goto' used in the Linux kernel
all over the place for that reason.

In this particular case it also makes perfect sense.

It probably is better to fold this patch into the other one when it
is rerolled to correct the option name gotcha "on the tin".

Why? This patch is standalone and fixes an issue that is independent
of the other patch. Why squash two patches that do *two* different

Anyway, I'll happily drop this patch if you want this memory leak to
remain. But then I'll do the same in the other patch.

This mantra of avodiing 'goto' is not helping anybody.

adding 5 letters (to change the next "if" into an "else if") versus your addition of several lines and some 15 additional letters (ignoring the whitsspace) is IMHO enough to see what is better?
