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

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

From: Wei Yongjun <yongjun_wei@trendmicro.com.cn>

commit c481420248c6730246d2a1b1773d5d7007ae0835 upstream.

Fix to return -ENOMEM in the allocation error case instead of 0
(if pmu_bus_running == 1), as done elsewhere in this function.
