Stupid question, is the check in udc_remove even necessary?

udc_probe is called from udc_plat_probe:

	if (udc_probe(udc)) {
		ret = -ENODEV;
		goto exit_dma;
	}

If the call fails, udc_plat_probe cleans up after itself and noticeably
*does not* call udc_remove.  As far as I understand, if probe callback
fails, remove callback is *not* called.  Meanwhile, udc_remove is called
from the remove callback which is udc_plat_remove.  So, udc_remove can
be called only if udc_probe succeeds.

It seems to me that a better patch is:
