From: Colin Ian King <colin.king@canonical.com>

The error return of config->id dereferences the kfree'd object config.
Fix this by using a temporary variable for the id to avoid this issue.

Addresses-Coverity: ("Read from pointer aftyer free")
Fixes: a49d14276ac4 ("gpio: sim: allocate IDA numbers earlier")
