Subject: [RFT PATCH] power: bq2415x_charger: Properly handle ENODEV from
 power_supply_get_by_phandle

The power_supply_get_by_phandle() on error returns ENODEV or NULL.
The driver later expects obtained pointer to power supply to be
valid or NULL. If it is not NULL then it dereferences it in
bq2415x_notifier_call() which would lead to dereferencing ENODEV-value
pointer.

Properly handle the power_supply_get_by_phandle() error case and abort probe.
