Subject: [PATCH] hwmon: nct7904: fix error check on register read

From: Colin Ian King <colin.king@...onical.com>

Currently the return from the call to nct7904_read is being masked
and so and negative error returns are being stripped off and the
error check is always false.  Fix this by checking on err first and
then masking the return value in ret.

Addresses-Coverity: ("Logically dead code")
Fixes: af55ab0b0792 ("hwmon: (nct7904) Add extra sysfs support for fan, voltage and temperature.")
