ENOENT means the property was not found, and ENOSYS means that
there is no GPIOLIB built into the kernel.

In hindsight really I think this did deserve a comment. Basically
what is going on here, is we are supporting both the old and the
new binding, this is the code that looks for the old binding. If
we don't find anything then we don't want to print a message now
because we will print a message when we later check for the newer
binding. However if the binding is present but somehow invalid
then we would like to print the error. The newer binding read
later won't detect if the older binding is present and corrupt.

Alas this looks like one of the first users.
