A null pointer deference on pdata can occur if the allocation of
pdata fails.  Fix this by adding a null pointer check and handle
the -ENOMEM failure in the caller.

Addresses-Coverity: ("Dereference null return value")
Fixes: 3ce85cc4fbb7 ("iio: st_sensors: get platform data from device tree")

That's a weirdo tag, but I suppose you have aligned with the maintainers
about this.

Applied to the togreg branch of iio.git and pushed out as testing for
the autobuilders to play with it.

Thanks,
