Subject[PATCH v6] staging: atomisp: move null check to earlier point
`find_gmin_subdev()` that returns a pointer to `struct
gmin_subdev` can return NULL.

In `gmin_v2p8_ctrl()` there's a call to this function but the
possibility of a NULL was not checked before its being dereferenced,

/* Acquired here --------v */
struct gmin_subdev *gs = find_gmin_subdev(subdev);

/* v------Dereferenced here */
if (gs->v2p8_gpio >= 0) {

With this change we're null checking `find_gmin_subdev()` result
and we return an error if that's the case. We also WARN()
for the sake of debugging.

Please do note that this change introduces a new return value to

[NEW] - raise a WARN and return -ENODEV if there are no subdevices.
- return result of `gpio_request` or `gpio_direction_output`.
- return 0 if GPIO is ON.
- return results of `regulator_enable` or `regulator_disable`.
- according to PMIC type, return result of `axp_regulator_set`
or `gmin_i2c_write`.
- return -EINVAL if unknown PMIC type.

Patch Changelog:
v4: Fix minor typo in commit message
v5: Remove typo from email subject
v6: Remove duplicate Signed-off-by tag
