I think Dan was recommending the opposite here, if I understood you
both correctly:
he said we should propagate the error code unless we know it's wrong, while you
want to keep the current behavior to avoid introducing changes ;-)

I guess in either case, looking at the callers more carefully would be
a good idea.

it's possible that this only happened with 'ccache', which first preprocesses
the source and the passes it with v4l2_subdev_call expanded into the
compiler. This means the line looks like

if ((!(cx->sd_av) ? -ENODEV :
(((cx->sd_av)->ops->vbi && (cx->sd_av)->ops->vbi->g_sliced_fmt) ?
&fmt->fmt.sliced) :

The compiler now complains about the sub-expression that it sees for

if (-ENODEV)

which it considers nonsense because it is always true and the value gets

Let me try again without ccache for now and see what warnings remain.
We can find a solution for those first, and then decide how to deal with
