[PATCH] Signedness issue in drivers/net/phy/phy_device.c
While checking gcc 4.1 -Wextra warnings, I stumbled across the following two warnings: drivers/net/phy/phy_device.c:528: warning: comparison of unsigned expression < 0 is always false drivers/net/phy/phy_device.c:546: warning: comparison of unsigned expression < 0 is always false Since phy_read() returns an integer and can return negative values, it seems to me the best way to get proper error handling working again is to make val an int. Currently it is an u32, so the < 0 check always fails.
