OK, I will fix it.

OK, I will drop 'nuc900_wdt->res' variable from the 'nuc900_wdt' structure and
declare it as logical variable.

I CC'ed Thierry Reding who is the author of devm_ioremap_resource().

Um, devm_ioremap_resource() spits out an error if it fails.

According to commit message of the previous patch made by Thierry Reding,

"devm_ioremap_resource() provides its own error messages so all explicit
error messages can be removed from the failure code paths."

Thus, there is no need to add an error message.
