At present, the memory allocated for the device.name is not released
in the error handling code. I have not found the relevant code to release
the vmbus device, so I am not sure how to release it corrently.

Generally, the pointer of device.name should be set to another pointer.
However, it was defined as "const" pointer and could not be released directly.

Thanks,
Yunjian
