drivers/atm/firestream.c: Fix unsigned return type

The function has an unsigned return type, but returns a negative constant
to indicate an error condition.  The result of calling the function is
always stored in a variable of type (signed) int, and thus unsigned can be
dropped from the return type.

A sematic match that finds this problem is as follows:

// <smpl>
identifier f;
constant C;

 unsigned f(...)
 { <+...
*  return -C;
 ...+> }
// </smpl>
