ftp wildcard related OOM handling

Hi Pavel,

The ftp wildcard matching code does some basic out of memory (OOM)
handling returning CURLE_OUT_OF_MEMORY when it detects that a memory
allocation has failed.

As a general rule, each function that fails with CURLE_OUT_OF_MEMORY
should also deallocate all memory it has requested before the function
returns with the CURLE_OUT_OF_MEMORY condition. Otherwise memory will
be leaked in 'low memory' conditions.

I was going to fix it myself but there are places where some code
reorganization might be necessary due to pointer aliases usage. So..

Could you spare some time to look into this wildcard related OOM
handling in ftplistparser.c and ftp.c?
