When running with the latest kernel, we get the following kmemleak message:
unreferenced object 0xffff8800c2a36100 (size 256):
  comm "modprobe", pid 629, jiffies 4294676002 (age 1531.115s)

According to the backtrace, it seems that we do not release the
device_private field of adapter device in the fail path of i801_probe
or the flow of i2c_del_adapter, so add the cleanup step to fix it.

? Why should we free something we don't have allocated? The fix must be
somewhere else probably...

We do allocate the device_private in device_private_init() when calling
dev_set_drvdata() to set adapter data in probe flow, and the calltrace
also shows this. Am I missing something?
