[PATCH] libahci_platform: Fail when PHY required but PHY support disabled

From: Mikko Perttunen
Date: Fri Jun 06 2014 - 03:46:23 EST

ahci_platform_get_resources handles resource management for
platform AHCI drivers, including getting a possible PHY
from the device tree. Since not all drivers need a PHY, it
ignores -ENODEV and -ENOSYS from devm_get_phy. However, when
the PHY subsystem is mistakenly disabled, -ENOSYS can be
returned even when a PHY is needed.

This patch modifies the -ENOSYS case to check if a "phys"
device tree node exists. If it exists, then clearly the PHY
subsystem is mistakenly disabled and the driver cannot work,
ahci_platform_get_resources will fail and propagate the error.
