Subject: [PATCH] i2c: puv3: Fix an error handling path in 'puv3_i2c_probe()'

There is a spurious 'put_device()' in the remove function.
A reference to 'pdev->dev' is taken in the probe function without a
corresponding 'get_device()' to increment the refcounted reference.

Add the missing 'get_device()' and update the error handling path

Fixes: d10e4a660d11 ("unicore32 machine related files: add i2c bus drivers for pkunity-v3 soc")
Signed-off-by: Christophe JAILLET <>
This patch is provided as-is. It is not even compile tested because I don't
use cross-compiler.

It is purely speculative and based on what looks like an unbalanced
'put_device()' in the remove function.
