[PATCH] gpio: max730x: eliminate double free

From: Julia Lawall
Date: Sat Sep 26 2015 - 16:29:07 EST

The function __max730x_remove is called from the remove functions of
drivers/gpio/gpio-max7300.c and drivers/gpio/gpio-max7301.c. In both
cases, the probe function allocates ts using devm_kzalloc. Explicitly
freeing such a value with kfree will cause a double free.
