Subject[80/98] hwmon: (fschmd) Fix a memleak on multiple opens of /dev/watchdog
2.6.32-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: Hans de Goede <hdegoede@redhat.com>

commit c453615f77aa51593c1c9c9031b4278797d3fd19 upstream.

When /dev/watchdog gets opened a second time we return -EBUSY, but
we already have got a kref then, so we end up leaking our data struct.
