[PATCH] drm/amd/display/dc/calcs/dce_calcs: Fix a memleak in calculate_bandwidth()

In calculate_bandwidth(), the tag free_sclk and free_yclk are reversed,
which could lead to a memory leak of yclk.

Fix this bug by changing the location of free_sclk and free_yclk.

This bug was found by a static analyzer.

Builds with 'make allyesconfig' show no new warnings,
and our static analyzer no longer warns about this code.

The analysis employs differential checking to identify inconsistent 
security operations (e.g., checks or kfrees) between two code paths 
and confirms that the inconsistent operations are not recovered in the
current function or the callers, so they constitute bugs. 

Note that, as a bug found by static analysis, it can be a false
positive or hard to trigger. Multiple researchers have cross-reviewed
the bug.
