SubjectRe: [PATCH] KVM: arm: Use PTR_ERR_OR_ZERO()
Hi Christoffer

It is just syntax sugar of course
and in mentioned function context it looks harmonically because it is
in the end of function return statement.
But in context of around source files it is looks not so harmonically because
existing code uses old approach.
And this old approach is only in one place here.
So it is just a try to fix the warning and may be force to use it in a
future changes.

Regards Vasyl
