There was no code for handling memory leaks of device_init_rings() and
request_irq(). It needs to free allocated memory in the device_init_rings()
, when request_irq() would be failed. Add freeing sequences of irq and
device init rings.

Signed-off-by: Ji-Hun Kim <>
It's additional memory leak handling patch from the
[PATCH v5 1/2] staging: vt6655: check for memory allocation failures

Changes v2:
- Change label names following coding-style conventions.
- Remove uneccessary goto, just return error number like original code.
