Why do you consider returning -EINVAL here a good idea? As far as I can
see the caller does not check the return value for an error condition
and I doubt that the hardware understands what -EINVAL means. If you
want to fix the warning, make sure that you don't hide actual errors,
add an WARN or BUG or make sure the error code makes it to userspace.
