[dpdk-dev] [PATCH v3] eal/linuxapp: fix return value check of mknod()

In function pci_mknod_uio_dev() in lib/librte_eal/eal/eal_pci_uio.c,
The return value of mknod() is ret, not f got by fopen().
So the value of ret should be checked for mknod().

Fixes: f7f97c16048e ("pci: add option --create-uio-dev to run without hotplug")
