Bug Description

Description:

Raven 2 platform fails to boot on ubuntu 19.04 (disco) with kernel 5.0.0. The issue is related to a fixed patch in linux-mainline about psp response code status.

In some cases, psp response status is not 0 even there is no problem while the command is submitted. Some version of PSP FW doesn't write 0 to that field. So here we would like to only print a warning instead of an error during psp initialization to avoid breaking hw_init and it doesn't return -EINVAL.

Steps:
1. Install Ubuntu 19.04 daily build on AMD Raven 2 platform (reproduced with 2019.03.18 version)
2. Reboot and it fails at kernel initialization.

Current patch status:
A patch has already accepted in the linux mainline. (id: 466bcb75b0791ba301817cdadeed20398f2224fe)
See: https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/?id=466bcb75b0791ba301817cdadeed20398f2224fe

Backport status:
A backport patch is available and verified.
