Subject[PATCH 1/2] pinctrl: nomadik: return if prcm_base is NULL
This patch adds a check for npct->prcm_base to make sure that the
address is not NULL before using it, as the driver was made capable of
loading even without a proper memory resource in:

f1671bf pinctrl/nomadik: make independent of prcmu driver

Also, refuses to probe without prcm_base on anything else than nomadik.

This solves the following crash, introduced during the merge window when
booting on U8500 with device tree:

pinctrl-nomadik pinctrl-db8500: No PRCM base, assume no ALT-Cx control is available
Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 00000138
pgd = c0004000
