Subject[PATCH 6/9] clocksource: kona: fix get_counter error handling
Date
I could not figure out why, but gcc cannot prove that the
kona_timer_init function always initializes its two outputs,
and we get a warning for the use of the 'lsw' variable later,
which is obviously correct.

drivers/clocksource/bcm_kona_timer.c: In function 'kona_timer_init':
drivers/clocksource/bcm_kona_timer.c:119:13: error: 'lsw' may be used uninitialized in this function [-Werror=maybe-uninitialized]

Slightly reordering the loop makes the warning disappear, after
it becomes more obvious to the compiler that the loop is
always entered on the first iteration.

As pointed out by Ray Jui, there is a related problem in the
way we deal with the loop running into the limit, as we just
keep going there with an invalid counter data, so instead we
now propagate a -ETIMEDOUT result to the caller.

Originally sent this as a warning fix only on June 13, this
version actually fixes the incorrect data problem.
