This is a stub inline function.
The return value would be ambiguous as the non-stub function can also
return -EOPNOTSUPP, in case the driver-init mode is not supported for a
parameter.

In general the stub functions should take care that the driver won't
feel the missing code as much as possible. That's why
devlink_params_register() returns success and so should this function.
