That looks valid, but I guess this should change one more thing:

this also needs to goto error_2. I guess something as the following
is needed:

if (IS_ERR_OR_NULL(bq->notify_psy)) {
    if (bq->notify_psy)
        dev_err(&client->dev, "no 'ti,usb-charger-detection' property\n");
    ret = PTR_ERR(bq->notify_psy);
    goto error_2;
}
