Subject: [PATCH] i2c: core: Fix possible memleak in i2c_new_client_device()

I got memory leak as follows when doing fault injection test:

unreferenced object 0xffff888014aec078 (size 8):
  comm "xrun", pid 356, jiffies 4294910619 (age 16.332s)
  hex dump (first 8 bytes):
    31 2d 30 30 31 63 00 00                          1-001c..
  backtrace:
    [<00000000eb56c0a9>] __kmalloc_track_caller+0x1a6/0x300
    [<000000000b220ea3>] kvasprintf+0xad/0x140
    [<00000000b83203e5>] kvasprintf_const+0x62/0x190
    [<000000002a5eab37>] kobject_set_name_vargs+0x56/0x140
    [<00000000300ac279>] dev_set_name+0xb0/0xe0
    [<00000000b66ebd6f>] i2c_new_client_device+0x7e4/0x9a0

In error path after calling i2c_dev_set_name(), the put_device()
should be used to give up the device reference, then the name
allocated in dev_set_name() will be freed in kobject_cleanup().
