Subject[PATCH 1/2] EDAC/sysfs: Fix memory leak when creating a csrow object
From 28e7f23939208bea639d6cd3d492cde3f65a7e4f Mon Sep 17 00:00:00 2001
From: Pan Bian <bianpan2016@163.com>

In edac_create_csrow_object(), the reference to the object is not
released when adding the device to the device hierarchy fails
(device_add()). This may result in a memory leak.

Good mailing practices for 400: avoid top-posting and trim the reply.
