Subject: [PATCH] ceph: fix uninitialized return code

clang points out a -Wsometimed-uninitized bug in the modified
ceph_real_mount() function:

fs/ceph/super.c:850:6: error: variable 'err' is used uninitialized whenever 'if' condition is false [-Werror,-Wsometimes-uninitialized]
        if (!fsc->sb->s_root) {
            ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
fs/ceph/super.c:885:9: note: uninitialized use occurs here
        return err;
               ^~~
fs/ceph/super.c:850:2: note: remove the 'if' if its condition is always true
        if (!fsc->sb->s_root) {
        ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
fs/ceph/super.c:843:9: note: initialize the variable 'err' to silence this warning
        int err;
               ^
                = 0

Set it to zero if the condition is false.

Fixes: 108f95bfaa56 ("vfs: Convert ceph to use the new mount API")
