> Subject: [PATCH 02/14] net: axienet: Propagate failure of DMA descriptor
> setup
> 
> When we fail allocating the DMA buffers in axienet_dma_bd_init(), we
> report this error, but carry on with initialisation nevertheless.
> 
> This leads to a kernel panic when the driver later wants to send a
> packet, as it uses uninitialised data structures.
> 
> Make the axienet_device_reset() routine return an error value, as it
> contains the DMA buffer initialisation. Make sure we propagate the error
> up the chain and eventually fail the driver initialisation, to avoid
> relying on non-initialised buffers.
