In function kexec_calculate_store_digests(), kfree() is used to free
memory allocated by crypto_alloc_shash(). It is better to use function
crypto_free_shash(), which frees up tfm and any resources associated with
it. And then, the refcount of the algorithm used in crypto_alloc_shash()
is also dropped.
