SubjectRe: [PATCH] leds-gpio: Fix error handling and memory leak
Sorry, I'm traveling and it's been rather busy.

I thought about this some more, and I've realized that the devm_kfree()
calls are probably still a good idea. Those are associated with the
device, not the LED.

For instance, I noticed that on a failure in the probe code the probe
code would get called multiple times. So that data would be left in the
device, even though it's not used.

Similarly, the pdev doesn't go away if you remove the led-gpio module
and then re-install it. Again, the data would be left in the device.

Does that make sense? If so, the original patch is best.
