Hi Laurent,

sorry, you're right, this patch should not be needed.

the connector should be cleanup by 

i did that in analogix_dp is to avoid a use-after-free issue not 
kmemleak, because the connector was allocated/freed in analogix_dp's 

but i found a kmemleak issue(dma_mask not freed) in dw-hdmi when testing 
that, will send patch soon.
