Subject[PATCH 1/4] oprofile: Handle initialisation failure more gracefully
Date
From: Will Deacon <will.deacon@arm.com>

The current implementation is not entirely safe in the case that
oprofile_arch_init() fails. We need to make sure that we always call
exit_driverfs() if we've called init_driverfs(). Also, avoid a potential
double free when freeing 'counter_config', e.g. don't free
'counter_config' in both oprofile_arch_init() and oprofile_arch_exit().
