This reverts commit 536cc27deade8f1ec3c1beefa60d5fbe0f6fcb28.

Commits from @umn.edu addresses have been found to be submitted in "bad
faith" to try to test the kernel community's ability to review "known
malicious" changes.  The result of these submissions can be found in a
paper published at the 42nd IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy
entitled, "Open Source Insecurity: Stealthily Introducing
Vulnerabilities via Hypocrite Commits" written by Qiushi Wu (University
of Minnesota) and Kangjie Lu (University of Minnesota).

Because of this, all submissions from this group must be reverted from
the kernel tree and will need to be re-reviewed again to determine if
they actually are a valid fix.  Until that work is complete, remove this
change to ensure that no problems are being introduced into the
codebase.

Hi Greg,

Checked this one.  As far as I can tell it was a valid cleanup of
error handling. Far from critical though and unlikely to be seen in practice.

So either leave it in place, or we can bring it back later. I don't mind
which.
