[PATCH][next] hwrng: exynos: check for -ve error return from readl_poll_timeout

From: Colin Ian King <colin.king@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

Currently, the return from readl_poll_timeout is being assigned to
a u32 and this is being checked for a -ve return which is always
false since a u32 cannot be less than zero.  Fix this by changing
val to an int so that error returns can be correctly detected.
