I think, it is clean and maintainable code have free() if rx_qconf as
if we add some another
exit error case in the future, we simply forget to add this check and
it will fail. So I prefer to keep
as-is for the sake of maintainability as there is no harm.

free accepts a NULL pointer so current practice is to avoid
useless if() tests before free.

Hi, Jerin

Thanks for your explanation.
According to Stephen's suggestion, is it need to remove unnecessary NULL check?

Thanks,

Yes. Makes sense to remove if check.

The glibc free allows free(NULL) as null operation,
so remove this useless null checks.
