Subject[PATCH] [STABLE-4.13] [media] imx-media-of: avoid uninitialized variable warning
Replaces upstream commit 0b2e9e7947e7 ("media: staging/imx: remove
confusing IS_ERR_OR_NULL usage")

We get a harmless warning about a potential uninitialized variable
use in the driver:

drivers/staging/media/imx/imx-media-of.c: In function 'of_parse_subdev':
drivers/staging/media/imx/imx-media-of.c:216:4: warning: 'remote_np' may be used uninitialized in this function [-Wmaybe-uninitialized]

I reworked that code to be easier to understand by gcc in mainline,
but that commit is too large to backport. This is a much simpler
workaround, avoiding the warning by adding a fake initialization
to the variable. The driver was only introduced in linux-4.13,
so the workaround is not needed for earlier stable kernels.
