Removing this is fine.  "ret = 1" is a mistake.

This was copy and pasted in commit 2199c9817670 ("libertas: use
mesh_wdev->ssid instead of priv->mesh_ssid").  The return value was
never used so it's not clear what returning 1 vs 0 was supposed to mean.

lbs_init_mesh() should just be a void function.
