[PATCH v2] irqchip: mediatek: Use IS_ERR() instead of NULL pointer check

From: Yingjoe Chen
Date: Wed Dec 10 2014 - 04:55:29 EST

Beniamino reported a kernel oops caused by an invalid DT file for the
mediatek interrupt polarity extension.

The reason is that the interrupt polarity support for mediatek chips
merely checks for NULL pointer instead of a casted error return
value in mtk_sysirq_of_init() so any other casted error value passes
the NULL pointer check and causes a kernel panic when dereferenced.

Use IS_ERR() and return the error value via PTR_ERR().
