Subject[PATCH 1/1] regulator: pwm: suppress EPROBE_DEFER error message
Suppress the "Failed to get PWM" error output if the actual error code
is EPROBE_DEFER. This makes the behavior of the pwm-regulator driver
consistent with what most other drivers do (which is: print all errors

An example where this cleans up the kernel log are the 32-bit Amlogic
Meson boards:
multi_v7_defconfig has CONFIG_REGULATOR_PWM=y and CONFIG_PWM_MESON=m.
When booting such a board (for example the Meson8b Odroid-C1) the
following message is printed five times during boot:
pwm-regulator regulator-vcck: Failed to get PWM: -517
On the sixth call the pwm-meson driver is finally loaded (as rootfs
becomes ready) and the "VCCK" pwm-regulator comes up fine.

Fixes: aa66cc6630a408 ("regulator: pwm-regulator: get voltage and duty table from dts")
