Subject: [PATCH net-next v2] drivers: net: davinci_mdio: fix potential NULL dereference in davinci_mdio_probe()

platform_get_resource() may fail and return NULL, so we should
better check it's return value to avoid a NULL pointer dereference
since devm_ioremap() does not check input parameters for null.

This is detected by Coccinelle semantic patch.

expression pdev, res, n, t, e, e1, e2;

res = \(platform_get_resource\|platform_get_resource_byname\)(pdev, t, n);
+ if (!res)
+   return -EINVAL;
... when != res == NULL
e = devm_ioremap(e1, res->start, e2);
