Subject[PATCH 1/2] PCI: rcar: Fix use-after-free in probe error path
If CONFIG_DEBUG_SLAB=y, and no PCIe card is inserted, the kernel crashes
during probe on r8a7791/koelsch:

rcar-pcie fe000000.pcie: PCIe link down
Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address 6b6b6b6b

(seeing this message requires earlycon and keep_bootcon).

Indeed, pci_free_host_bridge() frees the PCI host bridge, including the
embedded rcar_pcie object, so pci_free_resource_list() must not be
called afterwards.

To fix this, move the call to pci_free_resource_list() up, and update the
label name accordingly.

Fixes: ddd535f1ea3eb27e ("PCI: rcar: Fix memory leak when no PCIe card is inserted")
