I think there is something wrong with an interface that makes you use
IS_ERR_OR_NULL(). If you are calling reset_control_get_optional(), that'
should not return an error when there is no reset controller listed
in the device tree. We should still have a way to propagate -EPROBE_DEFER,
or bail out if there is a reset controller but there is something wrong
with it, but otherwise I'd suggest just leaving NULL as a valid pointer
in drv_data->rstc and making sure that the reset controller functions
can just deal with a NULL argument, so you never have to check it again.
