of_property_count_elems_of_size returns -EINVAL if np is NULL or if
there is no peoperty or prop->length % elem_size != 0, and -ENODATA
if there is no value associated with the property.

If -EINVAL is not an error, please no message. Noisy drivers are
just that, noisy.

You don't return an error, you return 0, at least in some circumstances.

It returns -ENOSYS if DT is not configured, which is still unacceptable.
And, again, if ret == 0 is an error, you should return an error code,
not display an error message and return 0.
