Yes, as it only does so if returning zero. I do further propose to
check its return value as well. Isn't that what return values are used
for?

Quoting from include/linux/of.h:

Search for a property in a device node and read 32-bit value(s) from
it. Returns 0 on success, -EINVAL if the property does not exist,
-ENODATA if property does not have a value, and -EOVERFLOW if the
property data isn't large enough.

Subject: [PATCH] backlight: pwm_bl: Fix uninitialized variable

Currently, if the DT does not define num-interpolated-steps then
num_steps is undefined meaning the interpolation code will deploy
randomly. Fix this.

brightness-levels")
