[PATCH 9/9] clocksource/drivers/bcm2835: Remove message on memory allocation failure

From: Markus Elfring <elfring at users.sourceforge.net>

The bcm2835_timer_init() function emits an error message in case of a memory
allocation failure. This is pointless as the mm core already do that.

Remove this message.

This issue was detected by using the Coccinelle software.
