[PATCH] iio: as3935: improve error reporting in as3935_event_work

From: Arnd Bergmann
Date: Mon May 30 2016 - 10:52:30 EST

gcc warns about a potentially uninitialized variable use
in as3935_event_work:

drivers/iio/proximity/as3935.c: In function âas3935_event_workâ:
drivers/iio/proximity/as3935.c:231:6: error: âvalâ may be used uninitialized in this function [-Werror=maybe-uninitialized]

This case specifically happens when spi_w8r8() fails with a
negative return code. We check all other users of this function
except this one.

As the error is rather unlikely to happen after the device
has already been initialized, this just adds a dev_warn().
Another warning already existst in the same function, but is
missing a trailing '\n' character, so I'm fixing that too.
