Subject: [PATCH net] netlink: fix a memory leak on error path

In genl_register_family(), when idr_alloc() fails,
we forget to free family->attrbuf.

Note, some callers call genl_unregister_family() to clean up
on error path, it doesn't work because the family is inserted
to the global list in the nearly last step.

Fixes: 2ae0f17df1c ("genetlink: use idr to track families").
