Subject: [PATCH] iio: core: move 'indio_dev->info' null check first

Doesn't fix anything. Just moves this to be the first check, as it's very
simple and fails the regitration earlier, instead of potentially
initializing the 'indio_dev->label' and checking for duplicate indexes, and
then failing with this simple-check.
