Subject: [PATCH] brcmfmac: no need to check return value of debugfs_create
 functions

When calling debugfs functions, there is no need to ever check the
return value.  The function can work or not, but the code logic should
never do something different based on this.

In doing this, make brcmf_debugfs_add_entry() return void as no one was
even paying attention to the return value.
