These direct operations are nothing a caller should deal with.

The caller does now:

	mci = ghes_mc_create(...);
	... /* prepare dimms */
	return ghes_mc_add_or_free(...);

To shut it down we just use:

	ghes_mc_free();

Pretty simple.

Now, lets look at your suggestion to put it out of the function. A
caller always needs to free the mci and dimms, so we will get:

	int rc;
	mci = ghes_mc_create(...);
	... /* prepare dimms */
	rc = ghes_mc_add(...);
	if (rc < 0) {
		/* free mci */
		/* free dimms */
		...
	}
	return rc;

We loose the tail call and simplicity here. Note this duplicates code
as there are 2 users of ghes_mc_add().

Now, the caller does not know the implementation details, so we need
to provide another release function (let's call it *_release() here):

	mci = ghes_mc_create(...);
	... /* prepare dimms */
	rc = ghes_mc_add(...);
	if (rc < 0) {
		ghes_mc_release(mci);
		ghes_dimm_release(dimm_list);
	}
	return rc;

Ok, now there is another function needed to release everything.

This design also impacts ghes_mc_free(). So the shutdown
implementation would turn to:

	struct mem_ctl_info *mci;
	...
	mci = ghes_mc_del();
	ghes_mc_release(mci);
	...

I don't see any benefit. See also below for the delta of an
implementation of the suggested changes.

ghes_mc_free() is the counterpart to ghes_mc_add() and thus needs to
also handle the dimm_list here. This cannot be left to the caller.

Considering all the above, I don't see how your suggestions to the
interface could improve the code. Hmm...

Below an implementation that illustrates the changes.

Thanks,
