1, memory leak in ramoops_register_dummy.
   dummy_data = kzalloc(sizeof(*dummy_data), GFP_KERNEL);
   but no free when platform_device_register_data return fail

2, if kzalloc(sizeof(*dummy_data), GFP_KERNEL) return NULL,
    but platform_driver_register(&ramoops_driver) return 0
   kfree(NULL) in ramoops_exit
so, add return val for ramoops_register_dummy, and check it in ramoops_init

3, memory leak in ramoops_init.
   miss platform_device_unregister(dummy) and kfree(dummy_data)
   when platform_driver_register(&ramoops_driver) return fail
