Subject[PATCH v2] EDAC, mc: Fix edac_mc_find() in case no device is found
Date
The function should return NULL in case no device is found, but it
always returns the last checked mc device from the list even if the
index did not match. This patch fixes this.

I did some analysis why this did not raise any issues for about 3
years and the reason is that edac_mc_find() is mostly used to search
for existing devices. Thus, the bug is not triggered.

Fixes: c73e8833bec5 ("EDAC, mc: Fix locking around mc_devices list")
