Subject[PATCH] HID: multitouch: prevent memleak with the allocated name
Date
mt_free_input_name() was never called during .remove():
hid_hw_stop() removes the hid_input items in hdev->inputs, and so the
list is therefore empty after the call. In the end, we never free the
special names that has been allocated during .probe().

Restore the original name before freeing it to avoid acessing already
freed pointer.

Hi Jiri,

I just spotted this one yesterday... My guess is that this way is safe (without
a locking mechanism to prevent accessing hi->input->name), but I'm not 100% sure.

Cheers,
Benjamin
