Subject: [PATCH] drm/msm: fix unsigned comparison with less than zero

From: Colin Ian King <>

The return from the call to _mixer_stages can be a negative error
code however this is being assigned to an unsigned variable 'stages'
hence the check is always false. Fix this by making 'stages' an

stages < 0")
