Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 4.19 27/64] debugfs: debugfs_lookup() should return NULL if not found

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@...uxfoundation.org>

[ Upstream commit 37ea7b630ae5cdea4e8ff381d9d23abfef5939e6 ]

Lots of callers of debugfs_lookup() were just checking NULL to see if
the file/directory was found or not.  By changing this in ff9fb72bc077
("debugfs: return error values, not NULL") we caused some subsystems to
easily crash.

Fixes: ff9fb72bc077 ("debugfs: return error values, not NULL")
