Subject: [PATCH] optee: don't fail on unsuccessful device enumeration

optee_enumerate_devices() can fail for multiple of reasons. For
example, I encountered issue when Xen OP-TEE mediator NACKed
PTA_CMD_GET_DEVICES call. This should not result in driver
initialization error because this is an optional feature.

Thus, it is better to print warning, instead of termination driver
