Subject: [PATCH] iio: imu: st_lsm6dsx: check st_lsm6dsx_shub_read_output return

From: Tom Rix <>

clang static analysis reports this represenative problem

st_lsm6dsx_shub.c:540:8: warning: Assigned value is garbage or undefined
        *val = (s16)le16_to_cpu(*((__le16 *)data));
             ^ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

data is set with

	err = st_lsm6dsx_shub_read(sensor, ch->address, data, len);
	if (err < 0)
		return err;

The problem with st_lsm6dsx_shub_read() is this statement

	err = st_lsm6dsx_shub_read_output(hw, data,
					  len & ST_LS6DSX_READ_OP_MASK);

The err value is never checked.
So check err.

Fixes: c91c1c844ebd ("iio: imu: st_lsm6dsx: add i2c embedded controller support")
