Subject: [PATCH v3 0/5] net: dsa: complete and fix the dsa unbinding

In order to cleanly unbind the dsa core, either as a module removal,
or a platform device unbind, switch the allocation the their devm_
counterparts and complete the destroy functions.

First, the missing kfree were added, the remove function were
completed then kfree were removed in favor to devm_ calls.

The last patch is an way to cleanly exit the probe when no
switch is found in the discover process.

The patches are based on the current net.

 - make checkpatch happy with 1/5 & 5/5
 - fix 5/5 exit path with a goto

Neil Armstrong (5):
  net: dsa: add missing kfree on remove
  net: dsa: add missing dsa_switch mdiobus remove
  net: dsa: complete dsa_switch_destroy
  net: dsa: switch to devm_ calls and remove kfree calls
  net: dsa: exit probe if no switch were found
