Subject: [PATCH v2] rsi: Fix NULL pointer dereference in kmalloc

kmalloc can fail in rsi_register_rates_channels but memcpy still attempts
to write to channels. The patch replaces these calls with kmemdup and
passes the error upstream.

Signed-off-by: Aditya Pakki <pakki001@....edu>

v1: Fix kmalloc failure by displaying a message. Change it to return the
error upstream, suggested by Joe, Johannes.
