Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 4.9 43/73] EDAC/sysfs: Fix memory leak when creating a csrow object

From: Pan Bian <bianpan2016@....com>

[ Upstream commit 585fb3d93d32dbe89e718b85009f9c322cc554cd ]

In edac_create_csrow_object(), the reference to the object is not
released when adding the device to the device hierarchy fails
(device_add()). This may result in a memory leak.
