Subject[PATCH] [net] net/mlx5e: fix another -Wmaybe-uninitialized warning
As found by Olof's build bot, today's mainline kernel gained a harmless
warning about a potential uninitalied variable reference:

drivers/net/ethernet/mellanox/mlx5/core/en_tc.c: In function 'parse_tc_fdb_actions':
drivers/net/ethernet/mellanox/mlx5/core/en_tc.c:769:13: warning: 'out_dev' may be used uninitialized in this function [-Wmaybe-uninitialized]
drivers/net/ethernet/mellanox/mlx5/core/en_tc.c:811:21: note: 'out_dev' was declared here

This was introduced through the addition of an 'IS_ERR/PTR_ERR' pair that
gcc is unfortunately unable to completely figure out. Replacing it with
PTR_ERR_OR_ZERO makes the code more understandable to gcc so it no longer

Hadar Hen Zion already attempted to fix the warning earlier by adding
fake initializations, but that ended up just making the code worse without
fully addressing all warnings, so I'm reverting it now that it is no longer

In order to avoid pulling a variable declaration into the #ifdef, I'm
removing it in favor of a more readable 'if()' statement here that
has the same effect.

Fixes: a42485eb0ee4 ("net/mlx5e: TC ipv4 tunnel encap offload error flow fixes")
Fixes: a757d108dc1a ("net/mlx5e: Fix kbuild warnings for uninitialized parameters")
