[PATCH 5.15 262/913] drivers/base/memory: add memory block to memory group after registration succeeded

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman

[ Upstream commit 7ea0d2d79da09d1f7d71c96a9c9bc1b5229360b5 ]

If register_memory() fails, we freed the memory block but already added
the memory block to the group list, not good. Let's defer adding the
block to the memory group to after registering the memory block device.

We do handle it properly during unregister_memory(), but that's not
called when the registration fails.
