It is possible for the call to snd_hda_get_num_conns to fail and return
a negative error code that gets assigned to num_conns. In that specific
case, the check of very large values of val against num_conns will not
fail the -EINVAL check and later on an out of bounds array read on
spec->smux_paths will occur.  Fix this by sanity checking for an error
return from the call to snd_hda_get_num_conns.

Addresses-Coverity: ("Out-of-bounds read")
