[Linux-kernel-mentees] [PATCH v2] bluetooth: hci_h5: close serdev device and free hu in h5_close

When h5_close() gets called, the memory allocated for the hu gets 
freed only if hu->serdev doesn't exist. This leads to a memory leak.
So when h5_close() is requested, close the serdev device instance and
free the memory allocated to the hu entirely instead.
