Subject: [PATCH 0/6] x86: cleanup debugfs usage

When calling debugfs code, there is no need to ever check the return
value of the call, as no logic should ever change if a call works
properly or not.  Fix up a bunch of x86-specific code to not care about
the results of debugfs.

Greg Kroah-Hartman (6):
  x86: mce: no need to check return value of debugfs_create functions
  x86: kdebugfs: no need to check return value of debugfs_create
    functions
  x86: kvm: no need to check return value of debugfs_create functions
  x86: mm: no need to check return value of debugfs_create functions
  x86: platform: no need to check return value of debugfs_create
    functions
  x86: xen: no need to check return value of debugfs_create functions
