Subject[PATCH 5.15 085/128] platform/x86: intel_pmc_core: fix memleak on registration failure
Date
From: Johan Hovold <johan@kernel.org>

commit 26a8b09437804fabfb1db080d676b96c0de68e7c upstream.

In case device registration fails during module initialisation, the
platform device structure needs to be freed using platform_device_put()
to properly free all resources (e.g. the device name).

Fixes: 938835aa903a ("platform/x86: intel_pmc_core: do not create a static struct device")
