Good spot on the bug thank you.

However, I don't think this works as a fix. Firstly, the err_gpio
label is used before the call to pm_runtime_get_sync, this might
be ok since pm_runtime_enable hasn't been called yet but probably
better to add a new label for it.

Secondly, following the err_hpdet error path will also result in
a double put. In that case I don't think there is any reason why
we need to put before calling input_device_register so it might
just be simplest to move that put until after registering the
input device.
