[PATCH][V2] staging: exfat: remove return and error return via a goto

From: Colin Ian King <colin.king at canonical.com>

The return statement is incorrect, the error exit should be by
assigning ret with the error code and exiting via label out.
Thanks to Valdis Klētnieks for correcting my original fix.
