When spi_alloc_master() returns null pointer, it’s no need to use
spi_master_put() to release the memory, although spi_master_put()

So, I don't see the benefit in changing then.
at91_usart_spi_probe_fail label is nicely unified across the probe function and having it called once more or once less is no interest to me.

Sorry but NACK until someone persuades me it's needed or common pattern among spi drivers.
