Subject: [PATCH 3.18 016/134] leds: lp5523: fix a missing check of return value of lp55xx_read

3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

[ Upstream commit 248b57015f35c94d4eae2fdd8c6febf5cd703900 ]

When lp55xx_read() fails, "status" is an uninitialized variable and thus
may contain random value; using it leads to undefined behaviors.

The fix inserts a check for the return value of lp55xx_read: if it
fails, returns with its error code.
