gcc-4.9 notices that the validate_init() function returns unintialized
data when called with a zero 'nr_buffers' argument, when called with the
-Wmaybe-uninitialized flag:

drivers/gpu/drm/nouveau/nouveau_gem.c: In function ‘validate_init.isra.6’:
drivers/gpu/drm/nouveau/nouveau_gem.c:457:5: error: ‘ret’ may be used uninitialized in this function [-Werror=maybe-uninitialized]

However, the only caller of this function always passes a nonzero
argument, and gcc-6 is clever enough to take this into account and
not warn about it any more.

Adding an explicit initialization to -EINVAL here is correct even if
the caller changed, and it avoids the warning on gcc-4.9 as well.

uhh, that function looks so odd, ... yeah. Change looks fine.
