gcc-9 complains about a blatant uninitialized variable use that
all earlier compiler versions missed:

drivers/iio/adc/rcar-gyroadc.c:510:5: warning: 'ret' may be used uninitialized in this function [-Wmaybe-uninitialized]

Return -EINVAL instead here.

Actually gcc-4.1 warned about that one too ;-)

So either I must have missed that warning when it appeared first,
or I must have concluded wrongly that it was a false positive.
Sorry for that...

This is correct but missing that the above 'return ret' is broken, too.
ret is initialized but 0 in that case.

And maybe we can use something else than -EINVAL for this case? I am on
the go right now, I will look for a suggestion later.

Nice catch! Oh well, given enough eyeballs, ...

-EINVAL is correct here (and in the above case, too), IMHO.

I don't think ret is initialized, reg is, not ret .

Yep, -EINVAL is fine.

It is initialized for the broken 'return ret' *above* the one which gets
rightfully fixed in this patch.

Agreed, 2 broken cases and this is only fixing the second one.
I'm expecting a v2 of this patch which fixes them both, so 
won't apply this v1.

Thanks,
