This check is mainly here in the case any codebase is added before the
pci driver register call below.

And if we log any error with dev_err() instead of pr_err() before the
driver register.

That check was only for logging purposes, if done with dev_err(). I
removed the check in v5.

Yes, the pci get device call needs its pair - pci_dev_put(). I added it
here and for the other occurrences where it was missing.

Thanks for review.
