Subject[PATCH v3] iio: dummy: iio_simple_dummy: check the return value of kstrdup()
Date
From: Xiaoke Wang <xkernel.wang@foxmail.com>

kstrdup() is also a memory allocation-related function, it returns NULL
when some memory errors happen. So it is better to check the return
value of it so to catch the memory error in time. Besides, there should
have a kfree() to clear up the allocation if we get a failure later in
this function to prevent memory leak.

I am sorry that I forgot to send this.
Changelogs:
v1->v2 add kfree() on the error path.
v2->v3 change the err lable.
