Subject: [PATCH 03/13] nvmem: core: Check input parameter for NULL in nvmem_unregister()

From: Andy Shevchenko <andriy.shevchenko@...ux.intel.com>

nvmem_unregister() frees resources and standard pattern is to allow
caller to not care if it's NULL or not. This will reduce burden on
the callers to perform this check.
