kconfig: fix memory leak when EOF is encountered in quotation

An unterminated string literal followed by new line is passed to the
parser (with "multi-line strings not supported" warning shown), then
handled properly there.

On the other hand, an unterminated string literal at end of file is
never passed to the parser, then results in memory leak.

[Test Code]

  ----------(Kconfig begin)----------
  source ""

  config A
          bool "a"
  -----------(Kconfig end)-----------

  --------( begin)--------
  config B
          bool "b\No new line at end of file
  ---------( end)---------

[Summary from Valgrind]

  Before the fix:

       definitely lost: 16 bytes in 1 blocks

  After the fix:

       definitely lost: 0 bytes in 0 blocks

Eliminate the memory leak path by handling this case. Of course, such
a Kconfig file is wrong already, so I will add an error message later.
