Subject[patch 36/47] ov7670: clean up ov7670_read semantics
2.6.25-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us
know.

------------------
From: Andres Salomon <dilinger@queued.net>

commit bca5c2c550f16d2dc2d21ffb7b4712bd0a7d32a9 upstream

Cortland Setlow pointed out a bug in ov7670.c where the result from
ov7670_read() was just being checked for !0, rather than <0. This made me
realize that ov7670_read's semantics were rather confusing; it both fills
in 'value' with the result, and returns it. This is goes against general
kernel convention; so rather than fixing callers, let's fix the function.

This makes ov7670_read return <0 in the case of an error, and 0 upon
success. Thus, code like:

res = ov7670_read(...);
if (!res)
goto error;

.will work properly.
