Promise? :-P

I mean, I don't mind getting rid of all that error handling getting in
the way of the code but we'll leave the injector in a half-init state if
the allocation fails.

I guess I can take this and see what breaks. If it does, we can always
revert it...

Btw, is your aim to make debugfs_create_file() return void or you're
just doing some cleanups?
