I'm always really impressed by this tool :-).

I think we want:

if (!dev || !clk || IS_ERR(clk) || !IS_ERR(clk_get(dev, func)))
return;
Since it is valid to return a NULL clk, and we don't want to try and
dereference it if that is the case.

We could also probably drop the !IS_ERR(clk_get(dev, func)) check, since
as far as I can tell it is just checking to see if the clock is already
associated, but there is no harm in re-assigning the same values, and
the two assignments in at91_clock_associate are going to be much quicker
than the lookup in clk_get.
