Subject: [PATCH] net: cosa: fix error check return value of register_chrdev()

From: Lv Ruyi <lv.ruyi@....com.cn>

If major equal 0, register_chrdev() returns error code when it fails.
This function dynamically allocate a major and return its number on
success, so we should use "< 0" to check it instead of "!".
