Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 4.19 040/172] yam: fix possible memory leak in yam_init_driver

From: Wang Hai <wanghai38@...wei.com>

[ Upstream commit 98749b7188affbf2900c2aab704a8853901d1139 ]

If register_netdev(dev) fails, free_netdev(dev) needs
to be called, otherwise a memory leak will occur.

Fixes: 1da177e4c3f4 ("Linux-2.6.12-rc2")
