Public bug reported:

The LPC patchset for HiSilicon boards landed upstream in the v4.17
merge window. We're currently carrying an earlier version (v14) of the
patches as SAUCE, while v17 + a bug fix is what was eventually merged.

There is at least one notable bug fix in the upstream version (a
Coverity-discovered dereference-before-null-check), along with quite a
bit of coding style clean-up. Replacing our patches w/ upstream
cherry-picks will increase the odds that future upstream bug fixes
will apply cleanly. Let's fix that bug and reduce our technical debt
by syncing with the upstream patches.
