#11669 closed Patch - Bug Fix (fixed)

Patch to free hdhomerun device memory after use - Fixes Coverity 700660 700661 700662

Static analysis detected a memory leak in cardutil.cpp after allocating a new hdhomerun_device, and it was not freed before returning.

This patch calls the hdhomerun_device_destroy function to free the storage.

It is possible that Coverity will not recognize the hdhomerun_device_destroy will free the memory, in which case one will need to manually acknowledge the Coverity issue. But the memory leak is real without the patch.
