media: dvb-core: always call invoke_release() in fe_free()
commit 62229de19ff2b7f3e0ebf4d48ad99061127d0281 upstream. Follow-up to: ead666000a5f ("media: dvb_frontend: only use kref after initialized") The aforementioned commit fixed refcount OOPSes when demod driver attaching succeeded but tuner driver didn't. However, the use count of the attached demod drivers don't go back to zero and thus couldn't be cleanly unloaded. Improve on this by calling dvb_frontend_invoke_release() in __dvb_frontend_free() regardless of fepriv being NULL, instead of returning when fepriv is NULL. This is safe to do since _invoke_release() will check for passed pointers being valid before calling the .release() function.
