Subject[29/82] drivers/net/wireless/p54/eeprom.c: Return -ENOMEM on memory allocation failure
2.6.35-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: Julia Lawall <julia@diku.dk>

commit 0d91f22b75347d9503b17a42b6c74d3f7750acd6 upstream.

In this code, 0 is returned on memory allocation failure, even though other
failures return -ENOMEM or other similar values.

A simplified version of the semantic match that finds this problem is as
follows: (http://coccinelle.lip6.fr/)

// <smpl>
@@
expression ret;
expression x,e1,e2,e3;
@@

ret = 0
... when != ret = e1
*x = \(kmalloc\|kcalloc\|kzalloc\)(...)
... when != ret = e2
if (x == NULL) { ... when != ret = e3
return ret;
}
// </smpl>
