Hi Michael

It is quite a common pattern to use:

        res = platform_get_resource(dev, IORESOURCE_MEM, 0);
        c->membase = devm_ioremap_resource(&dev->dev, res);
        if (IS_ERR(c->membase))
	   return PTR_ERR(c->membase)

which is more compact.

Doesn't this now break the coding style? No need to have the {} since
it is a single statement.
