[patch] iio: inkern: fix a NULL dereference on error

From: Dan Carpenter
Date: Tue Jan 26 2016 - 04:26:05 EST

In twl4030_bci_probe() there are some failure paths where we call
iio_channel_release() with a NULL pointer. (Apparently, that driver can
opperate without a valid channel pointer). Let's fix it by adding a
NULL check in iio_channel_release().
