pr_info would be more appropriate here.

As fair as I remember the -EINVAL is set only when the property is not
defined. Such situation is correct and our pwm-fan driver should work
with or without it.

As you pointed out in the comment to v2:

It is OK if the "cooling-levels" is not defined in DT. However, if it
has broken definition, then we should return error. This is what we do
here.

This is an error. "cooling-levels" with zero elements is regarded as a
broken property.
