'rc' is known to be 0 here.
Initialize 'rc' with the expected error code before using it.

While at it, avoid the affectation of 'rc' in a 'if' to make things more
obvious and linux style.

I would prefer:

"In cxl_add_chardev(), if the call to device_create() fails, we print 
the error message before 'rc' is set correctly, and therefore always 
print 0. Move the error message after setting 'rc'."

I strongly agree with this, some of the other cxl developers don't but 
they are wrong :)

Thanks for catching this!

You need a full 12 digits for the SHA1, otherwise our scripts complain
about it :(

I'll fix it up here, but please fix your tools.

thanks,
