Hi,

My proposed patch was initially triggered using coccinelle, as you must
have guessed.

In fact, I was surprised by the initial commit.
I don't have any strong opinion if testing the return value of
'clk_prepare_enable()' is relevant or not, but I was surprised that the
error handling path had not been updated at the same time.

So, before posting my patch, I have searched a bit in git history and it
gave:

Some of these are after a devm_clk_get(), which does not require a
modification in the error handling path (at least according to the one
I've looked at)

Some don't have any [devm_]clk_get() in the same function, and were not
investigated further.

But several also had the same construction as the one reported in this
thread, and needed, IMHO, an update of the error handling path to call
through clk_put().


It was "too" surprising to me to have "all" these "obviously" incomplete
patches merged.
I thought that I had missed something obvious and decided to propose one
fix to see the reaction (and didn't expected all your replies!)

So now, I think we should go through the commits above to either revert
the commit and remove the test (and document why it is not needed) or
fix the error handling path accordingly, even if one could know that it
cant' happen.
