I proposed introducing a list_for_each_entry_continue_reverse macro
to be used in setup_net() when unrolling the failed ->init callback.

Here is the macro and some more cleanup in the setup_net() itself
to remove one variable from the stack :) The same thing is for the
cleanup_net() - the existing list_for_each_entry_reverse() is used.

Minor, but the code looks nicer.
