when calling read_oob or write_oob, i need a mid-buffer which is used in 
meson_nfc_prase_data_oob(). i.e. after reading a page data into 
nfc->data_buf, I will format it and transfer to chip->data_buf.

ok, i will move it in the chip struct .

but how memleak happens even i have called meson_nfc_free_buffer before 
and free data_buf if info_buf alloc faied.
