Subject: [PATCH 4/5] phy: core: Fix error path in phy_create()

From: Roger Quadros <rogerq@...com>

Prevent resources from being freed twice in case device_add() call
fails within phy_create(). Also use ida_simple_remove() instead of
ida_remove() as we had used ida_simple_get() to allocate the ida.
