Subject: [PATCH] [PATCH v2 2/6] dgnc/dgnc_sysfs.c: checkpatch: Use of dev_err ? instead of printk

I originally wanted to replace both of  the  printk cals in this file with dev_err().
But in the function dgnc_create_driver_sysfiles only the struct pci_driver was given,
sadly I coudn't figure out a way to get a struct device when only a struct pci_driver is given.
