3.5.7.2 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Guennadi Liakhovetski <g.liakhovetski@gmx.de>

commit a7227a0faa117d0bc532aea546ae5ac5f89e8ed7 upstream.

dev_pm_qos_add_request() can return 0, 1, or a negative error code,
therefore the correct error test is "if (error < 0)." Checking just for
non-zero return code leads to erroneous setting of the req->dev pointer
to NULL, which then leads to a repeated call to
dev_pm_qos_add_ancestor_request() in st1232_ts_irq_handler(). This in turn
leads to an Oops, when the I2C host adapter is unloaded and reloaded again
because of the inconsistent state of its QoS request list.
