Subject[PATCH 4.9 191/329] xen: xenbus: use put_device() instead of kfree()
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Arvind Yadav <arvind.yadav.cs@gmail.com>

[ Upstream commit 351b2bccede1cb673ec7957b35ea997ea24c8884 ]

Never directly free @dev after calling device_register(), even
if it returned an error! Always use put_device() to give up the
reference initialized.
