Look at the failure for ida_simple_get(), there we're past the setup of
rproc->dev.type, so the rproc_type->release function will be invoked as
we call put_device().

So if you move the initialization of rproc->dev up right after the
allocation of rproc we should be able to rely on that to clean up all
these for us.
