Subject: [PATCH] Revert duplicate "PCI: pciehp: Prevent NULL dereference during probe"

This reverts commit bceee4a97eb58bd0e80e39eff11b506ddd9e7ad3.

This patch was applied twice (identical patch, different descriptions):
    62e4492 PCI: Prevent NULL dereference during pciehp probe
    bceee4a PCI: pciehp: Prevent NULL dereference during probe

Revert the latter to dispose of the duplicated code block.
