Subject: [PATCH] target: fix return code in target_core_init_configfs error
 path

commit 37bb7899ca366dc212b71b150e78566d04808cc0 upstream.

This patch fixes error cases within target_core_init_configfs() to
properly set ret = -ENOMEM before jumping to the out_global exception
path.

This was originally discovered with the following Coccinelle semantic
match information:

Convert a nonnegative error return code to a negative one, as returned
elsewhere in the function.  A simplified version of the semantic match
that finds this problem is as follows: (http://coccinelle.lip6.fr/)

// <smpl>
(
if@p1 (\(ret < 0\|ret != 0\))
 { ... return ret; }
|
ret@p1 = 0
)
... when != ret = e1
    when != &ret
*if(...)
{
  ... when != ret = e2
      when forall
 return ret;
}
// </smpl>
