Andy, I don't understand your issue.

of_i2c_register_devices() is about discovering the i2c devices below a
given bus. This is not what is happening here.

This is a driver for a master that supports multiple busses, so it the
above loop creates all the busses.

Please stop being so rude.

"implicitly" ? What's implicit here ? This is just pretty standard
cleanup after failure, you are being very cryptic here.

Please state precisely what it is you dislike with that code instead of
expecting us to guess and being nasty about it. Eddie was a genuine
question, he doesn't see what you think is "hurtful to the eyes" in the
code you quoted.
