  Memory leak in krb5 version 1.17

Status in krb5 package in Ubuntu:
Status in krb5 source package in Focal:

Bug description:
  Commit 1cd2821 altered the memory
  management of krb5_gss_inquire_cred(), introducing defcred to act as
  an owner pointer when the function must acquire a default credential.
  The commit neglected to update the code to release the default cred
  along the successful path.  The old code does not trigger because
  cred_handle is now reassigned, so the default credential is leaked.

  The commit 
fixes the leak.
  It's been part of newer krb5 releases (Jammy, and Noble have the releases 
with the fix). Bionic doesn't have the commit the introduced the memory leak.

  So this fix needs to be backported to Focal (only).
