Subject: [PATCH][next] brcmfmac: firmware: Fix uninitialized variable ret

From: Colin Ian King <>

Currently the variable ret is uninitialized and is only set if
the pointer alt_path is non-null. Fix this by ininitializing ret
to zero.

Addresses-Coverity: ("Uninitialized scalar variable")
Fixes: 5ff013914c62 ("brcmfmac: firmware: Allow per-board firmware binaries")
