The return value about hisi_reset_init() is not correct, fix it.

Fixes: e9a2310fb689 ("reset: hisilicon: fix potential NULL pointer dereference")
hisi_reset_init() returns NULL on error in that commit. This patch
doesn't make sense.

Hi Stephen,

The initial aim of this patch is to use correct return value about
hisi_reset_init(), maybe NULL is OK, but the return value in this
patch is more accurate.

In the current code, it always returns -ENOMEM when call function
hisi_reset_init() failed which is not proper, because in the function
hisi_reset_init(), devm_platform_ioremap_resource() may returns -EINVAL,
-EBUSY or -ENOMEM if failed.


static void __iomem *
__devm_ioremap_resource(struct device *dev, const struct resource *res,
enum devm_ioremap_type type)
resource_size_t size;
void __iomem *dest_ptr;


if (!res || resource_type(res) != IORESOURCE_MEM) {
dev_err(dev, "invalid resource\n");

size = resource_size(res);

if (!devm_request_mem_region(dev, res->start, size, dev_name(dev))) {
dev_err(dev, "can't request region for resource %pR\n", res);

dest_ptr = __devm_ioremap(dev, res->start, size, type);
if (!dest_ptr) {
dev_err(dev, "ioremap failed for resource %pR\n", res);
devm_release_mem_region(dev, res->start, size);
dest_ptr = IOMEM_ERR_PTR(-ENOMEM);

return dest_ptr;
