Subject[PATCH] drm/msm/dpu: Fix usage of ERR_PTR()
ERR_PTR() is used in the kernel to encode an usual *negative* errno code
into a pointer. Passing a positive value (ENOMEM) to it will break the
following IS_ERR() check.

Though memory allocation is unlikely to fail, it's still worth fixing.
And grepping shows that this is the only misuse of ERR_PTR() in kernel.

Fixes: 25fdd5933e4c ("drm/msm: Add SDM845 DPU support")
