Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 5.8 47/72] regulator: fix memory leak on error path of regulator_register()

From: Vladimir Zapolskiy <vz@...ia.com>

[ Upstream commit 9177514ce34902b3adb2abd490b6ad05d1cfcb43 ]

The change corrects registration and deregistration on error path
of a regulator, the problem was manifested by a reported memory
leak on deferred probe:

    as3722-regulator as3722-regulator: regulator 13 register failed -517

    # cat /sys/kernel/debug/kmemleak
    unreferenced object 0xecc43740 (size 64):
      comm "swapper/0", pid 1, jiffies 4294937640 (age 712.880s)

        ...

The memory leak problem was introduced as a side ef another fix in
regulator_register() error path, I believe that the proper fix is
to decouple device_register() function into its two compounds and
initialize a struct device before assigning any values to its fields
and then using it before actual registration of a device happens.

This lets to call put_device() safely after initialization, and, since
now a release callback is called, kfree(rdev->constraints) shall be
removed to exclude a double free condition.
