If i2c device probing fails, then there is no driver to dereference
after calling i2c_new_device(). Stop assuming that probing will always
succeed, to avoid NULL pointer dereferences. We have an easier access
to the driver anyway.

This fixes a real-world oops and should be pushed to Linus ASAP, thanks.
