Subject[PATCH v2] iio: dummy: iio_simple_dummy: check the return value of kstrdup()
Date
From: Xiaoke Wang <xkernel.wang@foxmail.com>

kstrdup() is also a memory allocation-related function, it return NULL
when some memory errors happen. So it is better to check the return
value of it so to catch the memory error in time. Besides, there should
have a kfree() to clear up the allocation if we get a failure later in
this function to prevent memory leak.

Signed-off-by: Xiaoke Wang <xkernel.wang@foxmail.com>

Changelog:
1. Clean up some error labels(error_ret & error_kzalloc), directly make
them reflect what they are clearing up and return.
2. Clear up indio_dev->name on error path. I put that under label
`error_free_device`, as kfree(NULL) is safe. Or I may need to add an
another label as the traget of `goto`.
Note: Suggestions are from Jonathan Cameron <jic23@jic23.retrosnub.co.uk>
