[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.9 13/27] r8152: Set memory to all 0xFFs on failed reg reads

[ Upstream commit f53a7ad189594a112167efaf17ea8d0242b5ac00 ]

get_registers() blindly copies the memory written to by the
usb_control_msg() call even if the underlying urb failed.

This could lead to junk register values being read by the driver, since
some indirect callers of get_registers() ignore the return values. One
example is:
ocp_read_dword() ignores the return value of generic_ocp_read(), which
calls get_registers().

So, emulate PCI "Master Abort" behavior by setting the buffer to all
0xFFs when usb_control_msg() fails.

This patch is copied from the r8152 driver (v2.12.0) published by
Realtek (www.realtek.com).
