I've added some comments in addition to those by Stephen.

Can't you just reuse the value of ret here?

Perhaps initialize this to -1? Assigning standard error codes to a GPIO
doesn't make much sense.

It's a shame we have to add workarounds like this...

Also the canonical form to write multi-line comments would be:

/*
* 0 (default ...
* ... surprises.
