Looks correct.

The err = mlxsw_driver->resources_register(mlxsw_core); pointer is a
pointer to mlxsw_sp_resources_register(). That function doesn't clean
up after itself on failure. Ideally, you'd want a matching
mlxsw_driver->resources_unregister as well pointer instead of hard
coding devlink_resources_unregister().

The error handling would be easier to review if the gotos told you what
the did. Right now they're written in "come from" style so the tell you
what happened on the line before.

if (!foo)
goto allocating_foo_failed;

Hopefully if someone fixes mlxsw_sp_resources_register() they'll choose
better label names.
