I made a small tweak whilst applying. It added an extra label but
I think makes the flow easier to follow than relying on the kfree(NULL)
so two error paths can share the same handling.

Applied with that tweak to the togreg branch of iio.git and pushed out
as testing for 0-day to see if it can find anything we missed.

Note I will rebase that tree on rc1 once available so it is not a
stable base to use for anything else.

Thanks,

Jonathan

I'm going to tweak this a tiny bit whilst applying and have separate label for
the two bits of cleanup.

Whilst it is of course correct to kfree(NULL) the flow isn't as obvious as it will be with
the extra label.
