The variable pdev is assigned to dev->plat_dev, and dev->plat_dev is 
checked in:

This indicates both dev->plat_dev and pdev can be NULL. If so, the 
function dev_err() is called to print error infomation.
  dev_err(&pdev->dev, "No platform data specified\n");

However, &pdev->dev is an illegal address, and it is dereferenced in 

To fix this possible null-pointer dereference, replace dev_err() with
