Subject[PATCH 3.16 075/133] driver core: bus: Fix a potential double free
3.16.51-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Christophe JAILLET <christophe.jaillet@wanadoo.fr>

commit 0f9b011d3321ca1079c7a46c18cb1956fbdb7bcb upstream.

The .release function of driver_ktype is 'driver_release()'.
This function frees the container_of this kobject.

So, this memory must not be freed explicitly in the error handling path of
'bus_add_driver()'. Otherwise a double free will occur.
