> There are several issues in fst_add_one() and fst_init_card():
> - invalid pointer dereference at card->ports[card->nports - 1] if
>   register_hdlc_device() fails for the first port in fst_init_card();
> - fst_card_array overflow at fst_card_array[no_of_cards_added]
>   because there is no checks for array overflow;
> - use after free because pointer to deallocated card is left in fst_card_array
>   if something fails after fst_card_array[no_of_cards_added] = card;
> - several leaks on failure paths in fst_add_one().
> The patch fixes all the issues and makes code more readable.
