Subject: [PATCH 4.9 112/130] PM / devfreq: Fix the bug of devfreq_add_device when governor is NULL

4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Chanwoo Choi <cw00.choi@...sung.com>

commit 73613b16cb5c5d5a659fc8832eff99eead3f9afb upstream.

This patch fixes the bug of devfreq_add_device(). The devfreq device must
have the default governor. If find_devfreq_governor() returns error,
devfreq_add_device() fail to add the devfreq instance.

Fixes: 1b5c1be2c88e (PM / devfreq: map devfreq drivers to governor using name)
