This patch has been added to the 4.1 stable tree. If you have any
objections, please let us know.




[ Upstream commit d1bf2d30728f310f72296b54f0651ecdb09cbb12 ]

Propagate the error of devfreq_add_device() in devm_devfreq_add_device()
rather than statically returning ENOMEM. This makes it slightly faster
to pinpoint the cause of a returned error.
