Subject: [PATCH] loopdev: remove an user triggerable oops

commit b1a6650406875b9097a032eed89af50682fe1160 upstream.

When loopdev is built as module and we pass an invalid parameter,
loop_init() will return directly without deregister misc device, which
will cause an oops when insert loop module next time because we left some
garbage in the misc device list.

Test case:
sudo modprobe loop max_part=1024
(failed due to invalid parameter)
sudo modprobe loop
(oops)

Clean up nicely to avoid such oops.
