Your error paths in the caller of aarp_proto_init() do not handle the case
where aarp_dl is created by register_netdevice_notifier() fails.  You have
to unregister aarp_dl if it is non-NULL.

So your out_dev label path needs to handle aarp_dl if non-NULL.

Probably best is to jump to out_aarp: instead and make aarp_cleanup_module
able to handle partial cleanups.
