ACPI thermal: extract return values using PTR_ERR
Thomas Sujith [Fri, 15 Feb 2008 23:26:54 +0000 (18:26 -0500)]
Need to extract errors using PTR_ERR macro and
process accordingly.thermal_cooling_device_register
returning NULL means that CONFIG_THERMAL=n and in that
case no need to create symbolic links.
