Chen Gang - May 21, 2013, 9:20 a.m.
When error occurs, need return the related error code to let upper
caller know about it.

ppc_md.nvram_size() can return the error code (e.g. core99_nvram_size()
in 'arch/powerpc/platforms/powermac/nvram.c').

Also set ret value when only need it, so can save structions for normal
cases.

The original related patch: "f9ce299 [PATCH] powerpc: fix large nvram
access".
