wait_for_completion_interruptible_timeout() can return 0 (timeout)
or -ERESTARTSYS when interrupted - the current code treats the
interrupted case as success which is wrong and could lead to hard
to reproduce errors. Fix this by returning non-0 in both cases
to the calling side. This also changes the timeout variable to the
proper type as wait_for_completion_interruptible_timeout() returns
long not int.

Fixes: commit fab6266e82a8 ("fpga manager: add driver for socfpga fpga manager")

It is not really clear to me why the _interruptible_ version of 
wait_for_completion is in use here - so maybe the proper mitigation
is to simply change the call to wait_for_completion_timeout() and
drop the interrupted case all together as the timeout of 10ms is 
not that long that waiting for timeout would be problematic. Someone
that knows the intent of selecting the _interruptible_ call would
need to check if this is a more reasonable option.

Patch was compile tested with:

Patch is against v4.11 (localversion-next is next-20170505)
