Subject[GIT PATCH 2/3] Resend : Fix memory leak in qcserial driver
Patch 2 of 3, addresses the problem where serial->private can end up pointing to freed memory in the event qcprobe fails & returns -ENODEV

Original description:
3 - Don't assign serial->private when doing the kzalloc or serial->private ends up pointing to freed memory in the event we return -ENODEV, instead call usb_set_serial_data(serial, data) at the end of the function, and only have one return-point.
