Yes of_get_name_gpio() can return other error value apart from
-EPROBE_DEFER.

I have return -ENODEV because invalid gpio pin can be positive.
static inline bool gpio_is_valid(int number)
{
     return number >= 0 && number < ARCH_NR_GPIOS;
}
Here if number > ARCH_NR_GPIOS then it's invalid but return value
will be positive.

We can return like this
     " return (gpio > 0) ? -ENODEV: gpio;"

But not sure this is worth to handle this.
