This patch has been added to the 3.18 stable tree. If you have any
objections, please let us know.



[ Upstream commit 52bba9809a954d72bc77773bd560b9724b495eb7 ]

Some of the clks can be registered & unregistered before the clk related debugfs
entries are initialized at late_initcall. In the unregister path checking for only
dentry before clk_debug_init() would lead dangling pointers in the debug clk list,
because the list is already populated in register path and the clk pointer freed in
unregister path.
The side effect of not removing it from the list is either a null pointer
dereference or if lucky to boot the system, the number of clk entries in
debugfs disappear.

We could add more checks like if (inited && !clk->dentry) but just removing
the check for dentry made more sense as debugfs_remove_recursive() seems to be
safe with null pointers. This will ensure that the unregistering clk would be
removed from the debug list in all the code paths.

Without this patch kernel would crash with log:
Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 00000000
