Subject[PATCH] net/mlx5: fpga: avoid uninitialized return codes
Date
calling mlx5_fpga_mem_{read,write}_i2c() with a zero length on
older compiler version such as gcc-4.6 results in a warning that
the return code is not initialized:

drivers/net/ethernet/mellanox/mlx5/core/fpga/sdk.c:147:6: error: ‘err’ may be used uninitialized in this function [-Werror=uninitialized]
drivers/net/ethernet/mellanox/mlx5/core/fpga/sdk.c:126:6: error: ‘err’ may be used uninitialized in this function [-Werror=uninitialized]

On newer compilers, the 'err' variable is optimized away in this
code path and assumed to be zero when the loop completes, so we
don't get this warning.

I'm changing the function here to instead return -EINVAL for the
case, under the assumption that it was never meant to be called
with a zero length argument.
