Looks right to me. But I wonder if we actually should go over the file
and unify the return value semantics or at least document them.
It's a bit puzzling to have functions which return negative errors and 0
*or 1* on success, and then functions which go with the traditional C
convention. That would help explaining the second hunk.

Also this return value handling is a bit weird in cases, like in
handle_l1_dte():

if (ret <= 0)
return ret;
return 1;

which looks like a glorified "return ret;" in that case to me.

But actually this is just nitpicking and the actual patch seems correct.

Cheers,
Andre.
