Subject: [v2][PATCH] Revert "mfd: syscon: Don't free allocated name for regmap_config"

From: Limeng <>

This reverts commit 529a1101212a785c5df92c314b0e718287150c3b.

The reverted patch moves the memory free to error path, but introduce
a memory leak. There is another commit 94cc89eb8fa5("regmap: debugfs:
Fix handling of name string for debugfs init delays") fixing this
debugfs init issue from root cause. With this fixing, the name field
in struct regmap_debugfs_node is removed. When initialize debugfs
for syscon driver, the name field of struct regmap_config is not
used anymore. So, revert this patch directly to avoid memory leak.
