During probe every time driver gets resource it should usually check for
error printk some message if it is not -EPROBE_DEFER and return the error.
This pattern is simple but requires adding few lines after any resource
acquisition code, as a result it is often omitted or implemented only
partially.
dev_err_probe helps to replace such code sequences with simple call,
so code:
	if (err != -EPROBE_DEFER)
		dev_err(dev, ...);
	return err;
becomes:
	return dev_err_probe(dev, err, ...);

I would rather see positive conditional (slightly better to parse when
read), but here I think it's more or less equal.
