Subject[PATCH] ISP1704 USB Charger: Fix use-after-free error in isp1704_charger_probe()
In isp1704_charger_probe() at the 'fail0:' label we kfree(isp) and
then subsequently call isp1704_charger_set_power(isp, 0). That's a
problem since isp1704_charger_set_power() dereferences the pointer it
is passed as its first argument, which is 'isp', which we already

Fixed by simply swapping the order of the two calls so that we only
kfree() *after* the call to isp1704_charger_set_power().
