Subject[PATCH, 3.18-stable regression] gadgetfs: fix uninitialized variable in error handling
gcc warns about a bug in 3.18.y:

drivers/usb/gadget/legacy/inode.c:648:10: warning: 'value' may be used

This is caused by the backport of f01d35a15fa0416 from 4.0 to 3.18:
c81fc59be42c6e0 gadgetfs: use-after-free in ->aio_read()

The backported patch was buggy, but the mainline code was rewritten
in a larger patch directly following this one in a way that fixed the

For stable, we should need only a one-line change to make sure we
return an proper error code. It is very unlikely that anybody ever
ran into the out-of-memory case here in practice, but the compiler
is right in theory.

Fixes: c81fc59be42c ("gadgetfs: use-after-free in ->aio_read()")
