[PATCH RESEND 0/1] Revert "spi/doc: spi_master_put must be followed up by kfree"

From: Alexey Klimov

Hi all,

During review of new SPI drivers I tried to understand connection
between comment "calling spi_master_put() and kfree() to prevent a
memory leak" for spi_alloc_master() in spi.c and why no driver calls
kfree() on error path. Looks like Uwe added this comment and later I
found patch from Guenter that reverted this comment but spi-imx.c was
not fixed for that time. Later in 2013 spi-imx was fixed. Is it
correct time right now to fix comment?

I tried to save authorship of patch from Guenter, added field "From"
and kept signed-off-by and cc. I hope i did it correctly in patch
(sorry for possible inconvenience).
Also marked it as RESEND since it's resend of original patch from 2012 year.

Best regards,
Alexey Klimov
