4.15-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Masahiro Yamada <yamada.masah...@socionext.com>

commit b9820a31691b771db37afe2054dd3d3a680c1eed upstream.

The error pointer from devm_reset_control_get_optional_shared() is
not propagated.

One of the most common problem scenarios is it returns -EPROBE_DEFER
when the reset controller has not probed yet.  In this case, the
probe of the reset consumer should be deferred.

Fixes: e2860e1f62f2 ("serial: 8250_of: Add reset support")
