Subject[PATCH] memstick: Fix error cleanup path of memstick_init
If bus_register fails. On its error handling path, it has cleaned up
what it has done. There is no need to call bus_unregister again.
Otherwise, if bus_unregister is called, issues such as null-ptr-deref
will arise.

Syzkaller report this:

kobject_add_internal failed for memstick (error: -12 parent: bus)
