    Subject[PATCH net] net: cpsw: fix NULL pointer exception in the probe error path
    In certain cases when the probe function fails the error path calls
    cpsw_remove_dt() before calling platform_set_drvdata(). This is an
    issue as cpsw_remove_dt() uses platform_get_drvdata() to retrieve the
    cpsw_common data and leds to a NULL pointer exception. This patches
    fixes it by calling platform_set_drvdata() earlier in the probe.

    Fixes: 83a8471ba255 ("net: ethernet: ti: cpsw: refactor probe to group common hw initialization")
