Subject: [PATCH 3.13 023/259] iio: of_iio_channel_get_by_name() returns non-null pointers for error legs

3.13.11.6 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Adam Thomson <Adam.Thomson.Opensource@...semi.com>

commit a2c12493ed7e63a18cef33a71686d12ffcd6600e upstream.

Currently in the inkern.c code for IIO framework, the function
of_iio_channel_get_by_name() will return a non-NULL pointer when
it cannot find a channel using of_iio_channel_get() and when it
tries to search for 'io-channel-ranges' property and fails. This
is incorrect behaviour as the function which calls this expects
a NULL pointer for failure. This patch rectifies the issue.
