Subject[patch] drivers/leds/leds-lp5521.c: fix lp5521_read() error handling
Gcc 4.6.2 complains that:
drivers/leds/leds-lp5521.c: In function ‘lp5521_load_program’:
drivers/leds/leds-lp5521.c:214:21: warning: ‘mode’ may be used uninitialized in this function [-Wuninitialized]
drivers/leds/leds-lp5521.c: In function ‘lp5521_probe’:
drivers/leds/leds-lp5521.c:788:5: warning: ‘buf’ may be used uninitialized in this function [-Wuninitialized]
drivers/leds/leds-lp5521.c:740:6: warning: ‘ret’ may be used uninitialized in this function [-Wuninitialized]

These are real problems if lp5521_read() returns an error. When that
happens we should handle it, instead of ignoring it or doing a bitwise
OR with all the other error codes and continuing.
