My understanding is that memory will only be freed when the driver
gets unloaded and the next connection of the device will allocate a
new one.
So every new disconnection and re-connection there will be a small
memory leak until the driver gets unloaded.

I was just trying to improve the code as the original source calls
kfree even when kzalloc fails.
And using devm_* would remove the need for kfree and the end of probe.
