When misc_register() fails, wd_data will be released by the
release callback function watchdog_core_data_release(), so
we don't need to free it again. But when watchdog_kworker is
NULL, we should free wd_data to prevent memleak.

Fixes: cb36e29bb0e4b ("watchdog: initialize device before misc_register")
