In principle, it would suffice to replace the "else if (...)" with "else"
to fix the Clang warning AFAICS, but that's not the only issue with this
function.

Namely, it confuses errno with acpi_status and may cause the latter to be
returned to user space in certain situations which should never be done.

So, I'd prefer to apply something like the (untested so far) patch below.
