Subject[PATCH 1/1] mmc: pwrseq: Fix error code propagation in mmc_pwrseq_simple_alloc()
If the struct mmc_pwrseq_match .alloc function used to allocate a
struct mmc_pwrseq fails, the error is propagated to mmc_of_parse().

But instead of returning the error code in pwrseq, host->pwrseq is
returned which will always be 0. So mmc_of_parse() succeeds even if
the pwrseq .alloc function failed and host->pwrseq is NULL.

This makes the SDIO device to not be powered if the power sequencing
.alloc functions wants to be deferred due a missing resource because
the mmc controller driver probe did wrongly succeed.
