Subject[PATCH net-next] mlx5: Restore err assignment in mlx5_mdev_init
Clang warns:

drivers/net/ethernet/mellanox/mlx5/core/main.c:1278:6: warning: variable
'err' is used uninitialized whenever 'if' condition is true
if (!priv->dbg_root) {
drivers/net/ethernet/mellanox/mlx5/core/main.c:1303:9: note:
uninitialized use occurs here
return err;
drivers/net/ethernet/mellanox/mlx5/core/main.c:1278:2: note: remove the
'if' if its condition is always false
if (!priv->dbg_root) {
drivers/net/ethernet/mellanox/mlx5/core/main.c:1259:9: note: initialize
the variable 'err' to silence this warning
int err;
= 0
1 warning generated.

This path previously returned -ENOMEM, restore that error code so that
it is not uninitialized.
