Subject: [PATCH review for 4.4 24/24] [media] bt8xx: fix memory leak

From: Sudip Mukherjee <sudipm.mukherjee@...il.com>

[ Upstream commit 6792eb0cf9310ec240b7e7c9bfa86dff4c758c68 ]

If dvb_attach() fails then we were just printing an error message and
exiting but the memory allocated to state was not released.
