Subject[PATCH] regmap: debugfs: Fix memory leak in regmap_debugfs_init
Date
As detected by kmemleak running on i.MX6ULL board:

nreferenced object 0xd8366600 (size 64):
comm "swapper/0", pid 1, jiffies 4294937370 (age 933.220s)
hex dump (first 32 bytes):
64 75 6d 6d 79 2d 69 6f 6d 75 78 63 2d 67 70 72 dummy-iomuxc-gpr
40 32 30 65 34 30 30 30 00 e3 f3 ab fe d1 1b dd @20e4000........

Root cause is that map->debugfs_name is allocated using kasprintf
and then the pointer is lost by assigning it other memory address.
