Here are some additional fixes for issues that Coverity flagged.  With
this series, the remaining issues Coverity marks as "High Impact" that
appear to me to be real are addressed.*  This also addresses most of the
issues that Coverity marks as "Medium Impact" that looked real to me,
but there are a few remaining ones that I will take another crack at
later (unless someone beats me to it).


* We need to teach it to ignore the iterator macros that cause unitialized
pointer read errors, which may be hiding legitimate issues in that

Justin Pettit (7):
  table: Free "error" in cell_to_text().
  netdev-linux: Zero-out "sin" in netdev_linux_arp_lookup().
  ovs-vsctl: Free "columns" in cmd_find().
  test-ovsdb: Don't leak return value from ovsdb_txn_commit().
  ovsdb-tool: Close "log" in do_show_log().
  nx-match: Don't fall through case when handling dest mcast mac
  ovsdb-idl: Remove deadcode related to "reply" in ovsdb_idl_run().
