In rtl_usb_probe, a new hw is allocated via ieee80211_alloc_hw(). This
allocation should be released in case of allocation failure for
rtlpriv->usb_data.

Fixes: a7959c1394d4 ("rtlwifi: Preallocate USB read buffers and eliminate kalloc in read routine")

Which event did trigger the sending of this patch variant
after a similar change was integrated already?

Oh! It's duplicate, thanks for catching that.
