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

unreferenced object 0xffff888014aec078 (size 8):
  comm "xrun", pid 356, jiffies 4294910619 (age 16.332s)
  hex dump (first 8 bytes):
    31 2d 30 30 31 63 00 00                          1-001c..

    [<000000000b220ea3>] kvasprintf+0xad/0x140
    [<00000000b83203e5>] kvasprintf_const+0x62/0x190
    [<000000002a5eab37>] kobject_set_name_vargs+0x56/0x140
    [<00000000300ac279>] dev_set_name+0xb0/0xe0
    [<00000000b66ebd6f>] i2c_new_client_device+0x7e4/0x9a0

If device_register() returns error in i2c_new_client_device(),
the name allocated by i2c_dev_set_name() need be freed. As
comment of device_register() says, it should use put_device()
to give up the reference in the error path.

Moving i2c_dev_set_name() to front of device_register(), so
it's managed by device core, then call put_device(), when the
refcount is 0, the name will be freed in kobject_cleanup() and
the 'client' will be freed in i2c_client_dev_release().

Because the 'client' is freed by calling put_device(), so it
don't need goto error label, release other resources before
put_device() and return directly.
