Subject[PATCH 3.2 059/115] hwmon: (max1111) Return -ENODEV from max1111_read_channel if not instantiated
3.2.80-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Guenter Roeck <linux@roeck-us.net>

commit 3c2e2266a5bd2d1cef258e6e54dca1d99946379f upstream.

arm:pxa_defconfig can result in the following crash if the max1111 driver
is not instantiated.

Unhandled fault: page domain fault (0x01b) at 0x00000000

This can occur because the SPI controller driver (SPI_PXA2XX) is built as
module and thus not necessarily loaded. While building SPI_PXA2XX into the
kernel would make the problem disappear, it appears prudent to ensure that
the driver is instantiated before accessing its data structures.
