When i2c_new_dummy fails, the lack of error-handling code may
cause unexpected results.

This patch adds error-handling code after calling i2c_new_dummy.

What are those unexpected results ? The i2c devicees are not really used;
the only reason to allocate them was for address reservation purposes.
This is why the result was ignored, since it does not really matter
for driver operation. I don't see the point of making that fatal.

NACK, sorry.
