I wonder if a better solution for this would be to WARN_ON in case _minor_
happens to be NULL and return -EINVAL, instead of just returning zero.

Something like:

struct drm_device *dev;

if (WARN_ON(!minor)
      return -EINVAL;

dev = minor->dev;

What do you think?

In my opinion everything in debugfs is optional. I'm not sure if it is even
possible for dev->primary, dev->render or dev->control to be NULL from the DRM
core but if so I think the failure should be silent.

Don't have code in front of me atm, but I think this is one of those
things you can hit both before and after we have the minor, depending
on whether filesystem and fw are present when the driver loads or
not.. so I don't think it should be a WARN_ON().

I get it. Then in this case this patch should work just fine.

Thank you both Jordan and Rob for the feedback.
