Subject: [PATCH 3/7] drivers/net/wireless/p54/eeprom.c: Return -ENOMEM on memory allocation failure

From: Julia Lawall <julia@...u.dk>

In this code, 0 is returned on memory allocation failure, even though other
failures return -ENOMEM or other similar values.

A simplified version of the semantic match that finds this problem is as
follows: (http://coccinelle.lip6.fr/)

// <smpl>
@@
expression ret;
expression x,e1,e2,e3;
@@

ret = 0
... when != ret = e1
*x = \(kmalloc\|kcalloc\|kzalloc\)(...)
... when != ret = e2
if (x == NULL) { ... when != ret = e3
  return ret;
}
// </smpl>
