You can add a helper to free mcast stats and use it in the error path.
I'd like to keep the port dismantling code as it's currently done, moving
multicast stats freeing away from br_multicast_del_port is wrong.

In fact I think you can directly use br_multicast_del_port() as it's a noop w.r.t the
other actions (stopping timers that were never started and walking empty lists).
You'll have to test it, of course.

For this patch:
