Hm, as far as I can see, when register_trigger() returns >= 0, it already
calls ->init the trigger_data. This means its refcount++, and in that
case, below patch will miss to free the trigger_data.
How about below for tentative fix?

	if (!ret) {
		ret = -ENOENT;
		/* We have to forcibly free the trigger_data */
		goto out_free;
	} else if (ret > 0)
		ret = 0;

Thank you,
