In case kmemdup fails, the fix releases resources and returns to
avoid the NULL pointer dereference.

nd_btt->id is an ida and thus must be freed using:
ida_simple_remove(&nd_region->btt_ida, nd_btt->id);

that being I'd prefer a 'out_put_id' label at the end of the function
and to the cleanups there.

Something like this:

	if (uuid) {
		uuid = kmemdup(uuid, 16, GFP_KERNEL);
		if (!uuid)
			goto out_put_id;

	[...]

	return dev;

out_put_id:
	ida_simple_remove(&nd_region->btt_ida, nd_btt->id);
	kfree(nd_btt);
	return NULL;
}
