[PATCH 4.15 042/146] MIPS: OCTEON: irq: Check for null return on kzalloc allocation

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


From: Colin Ian King <colin.king@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit 902f4d067a50ccf645a58dd5fb1d113b6e0f9b5b upstream.

The allocation of host_data is not null checked, leading to a null
pointer dereference if the allocation fails. Fix this by adding a null
check and return with -ENOMEM.
