     ^^^^^

This initialization is not needed.

Here we can jump directly to out_fail, no ?

	goto out_unregister_drv;


etc ...

So, the code should end up with:

out_kfree_dev:
	kfree(dev);
out_unregister_drv:
	cpuidle_unregister_drv(drv);
out_kfree_drv:
	kfree(drv);

Perhaps it could nicer to create a function with the rollback embedded:

	for_each_possible_cpu(cpu) {
		ret = arm_idle_init_cpu(cpu)
		if (ret)
			goto out_fail;
	}

	return 0;

out_fail:

	while (--cpu >= 0) {
		cpuidle_unregister_device(per_cpu(cpuidle_devices,cpu));
		cpuidle_unregister_driver(cpuidle_get_cpu_driver(dev));
		kfree(dev);
		kfree(drv);
	}

	return ret;

And arm_idle_init_cpu(int cpu) does what is currently in the loop content.
