Subject: [PATCH V2] ARM: STi: warn if scu mapping fails

 If the device node is not found or the of_iomap() failed, calling
scu_enable would not be safe and could lead to an undefined system
state. So warn in both failure paths before returning.

Signed-off-by: Nicholas Mc Guire <hofrat@...dl.org>
Link: http://lkml.org/lkml/2018/7/16/219
Fixes: commit 65ebcc115889 ("ARM: sti: Add STiH415 SOC support")
---

V2: replacement of WARN_ON() by a meaningful pr_err as suggested by
    Patrice CHOTARD <patrice.chotard@...com>.

Problem was found by an experimental coccinelle script

Patch was compile tested with: multi_v7_defconfig (implies
CONFIG_ARCH_STI=y, CONFIG_SMP=y)
(with one sparse warning unrelated to the proposed change)

Patch is against 4.18-rc4 (localversion-next is next-20180716)
