crypto: cryptd - Fix skcipher instance memory leak

commit 1a0fad630e0b7cff38e7691b28b0517cfbb0633f upstream.

cryptd_skcipher_free() fails to free the struct skcipher_instance
allocated in cryptd_create_skcipher(), leading to a memory leak.  This
is detected by kmemleak on bootup on ARM64 platforms:

 unreferenced object 0xffff80003377b180 (size 1024):
   comm "cryptomgr_probe", pid 822, jiffies 4294894830 (age 52.760s)
   backtrace:
     kmem_cache_alloc_trace+0x270/0x2d0
     cryptd_create+0x990/0x124c
     cryptomgr_probe+0x5c/0x1e8
