When hda_codec_driver_probe meet error and return failure, we need
to free resource with patch_ops.free, or we will get resource leak.

 Changes v1-v2:
 1: Fix calling patch_ops.free after module_put, reported by Takashi Iwai.

 Hi! Takashi Iwai
 Because the only one calling site of patch_ops.free is in
 hda_codec_driver_remove, and if hda_codec_driver_probe return
 failure, we will no chance to call the hda_codec_driver_remove,
 so I think we don't need to care below case:
 "Or, for safety, we may put an internal flag to indicate that the codec
  free got already called, and check it at before calling
  patch_ops.free, too."

 Thanks!

Fair enough, applied now.

I found patch_ca0132.c still misses the free at the error path in its
probe function, so I'll fix it.

thanks,

Takashi
