Subject: [PATCH 1/2] gpio: removes all usage of gpiochip_remove retval

The aim of this patch is to make gpiochip_remove() behavior consistent,
especially when issuing a remove request while the chipio chip is still
requested. It is the 1st patch in a serie af 2 patches. the 2nd patch
changes the return value of gpiochip_remove() from int to void. This one
updates users of the return value.
