I got memory leak as follows when doing fault injection test:

unreferenced object 0xffff88818be6dcb8 (size 8):
  comm "modprobe", pid 1022129, jiffies 4363911608 (age 43.838s)

The root cause was traced to an error handing path in
i2c_register_adapter() when device_register() fails. After
calling dev_set_name() which called by i2c_register_adapter(),
the put_device() should be used to give up the device reference
in error handling path in order to free "kobj->name" alloced
in dev_set_name().

Fix it by calling put_device() when device_register() fails in
i2c_register_adapter(). In addition, when i2c_adapter device
is released, i2c_adapter_dev_release() is called, in which
"dev_released" must be initialized, otherwise a kernel bug
will be triggered.
