Subject: [PATCH] w1-gpio: handle of_get_gpio() returning -EPROBE_DEFER better

of_get_gpio() might return -EPROBE_DEFER meaning that the driver
providing the gpio isn't ready yet. If that happens for the first gpio
the resulting kernel output without this patch is:

	w1-gpio somename: Failed to parse DT
	platform somename: Driver w1-gpio requests probe deferral

The first message is misleading and so is suppressed with this patch.

Further if determining the gpio to switch the external pullup yields
-EPROBE_DEFER this error should be passed back to the caller instead of
just continuing without pullup.

Actually I'm not completely happy with this change because IMHO if a
device tree node contains:

	gpios = <&gpio5 0 0 4>;

where gpio5's #gpio-cells property is <2> I'd prefer to not bind the
driver with an error message instead of treating it as if

	gpios = <&gpio5 0 0>;

was specified. Still this patch is a correct first step.

So something like that would be nice:

	len = get_len_of_gpio_array();
	if (len < 0)
		/* not well-formed */
		return len;

	if (len == 1)
		go on without pullup
	else if (len == 2)
		go on with pullup
	else
		scream
