This function (qcom_cpufreq_kryo_driver_init) returns zero on success.
You are checking "np" here for being an error pointer, or NULL.
What value do you think PTR_ERR() returns in the case of PTR_ERR(NULL)?

IS_ERR_OR_NULL() is considered by some (me included) as being _very_
harmful because programmers generally fail to look at linux/err.h and
consider what it means when used as above.
