Subject: [PATCH 1/2] mfd: twl-core: Return directly after a failed
 platform_device_alloc() in add_numbered_child()

From: Markus Elfring <elfring@...rs.sourceforge.net>
Date: Sun, 15 May 2016 19:20:28 +0200

The platform_device_put() function was called in one case by the
add_numbered_child() function during error handling even if the passed
variable "pdev" contained a null pointer.

* Change an error message.

* Return directly in this case.

This issue was detected by using the Coccinelle software.
