Subject: [PATCH] iio: sca3000: Remove an erroneous 'get_device()'

This looks really unusual to have a 'get_device()' hidden in a 'dev_err()'
Remove it.

While at it add a missing \n at the end of the message.

Signed-off-by: Christophe JAILLET <>
This patch is purely speculative.
I've looked a bit arround and see no point for this get_device() but other
eyes are welcomed :)
