In sepol_ibendport_key_create(), if sepol_ibendport_alloc_ibdev_name()
fails to allocate tmp_key->ibdev_name, sepol_ibendport_key_free() is
called to free the memory associated with tmp_key, which results in
free() being called on uninitialized tmp_key->ibdev_name.

This issue is reported by clang's static analyzer with the following

     ibendport_record.c:115:2: warning: 1st function call argument is an

It seems to be that a better way to fix this is to modify sepol_ibendport_alloc_ibdev_name(), so that the result of the calloc is assigned to *ibdev_name. That way if the calloc fails, tmp_key->ibdev_name will be set to NULL automatically.
