Reorder code in the error handling path in order to match the way

With this new order, we can avoid a call to 'device_unregister()' if
'thermal_zone_create_device_groups'()' fails. At this point,
'device_register()' has not been called yet.

I agree we should release ida and free tz, like you did in this patch.

But the problem is in the code below, where device_register() fails,
we should free the resources allocated in
thermal_zone_create_device_groups() explicitly.


Thanks for the review.

I will propose a v2 patch serie with some new helper functions:
   void destroy_trip_attrs(struct thermal_zone_device *tz)
   void thermal_zone_destroy_device_groups(struct thermal_zone_device *tz)

'thermal_zone_destroy_device_groups()' will then be called in the error handling path of 'thermal_zone_device_register()', when 'device_register()' fails.

Would you like me to keep the same patch granularity:
- (new patch in the serie) - Add some new helper functions to free resources - add kfree(tz) in the actual error handling path (despite your comment on patch 1/3, I still think it is needed in thie error handling path)
   - reorder error handling code
   - avoid code duplication

Or the 3 last ones can be merged together under a generic "Fix resources release in error paths in thermal_zone_device_register()" ?
