A recent change removed code that initialized the return code variable 'err'. It
is now possible for mlx5_esw_bridge_port_changeupper() to return an error code
using this uninitialized variable. Fix it by initializing to 0.

Addresses-Coverity: ("Uninitialized scalar variable (UNINIT)")

Tim, thanks for fixing this!

Saeed, this is the second similar issue that I mentioned in my reply to
Colin. Again, I've already submitted same patch internally and this one
is as good as mine.

Just wondering, do we really need 12 inline CCs for fixing a poor
coverity?

I don't mind both patches are perfect.
