I haven't looked through the code paths very closely, but I
think that get_named_gpio() might return -EPROBE_DEFER, which
would be something we want to pass to the caller.

So rather than returning -ENODEV and hiding the reason the
call to of_get_named_gpio() failed, you should continue
returning the errno it supplies (if not a valid gpio number).
