    Subject[PATCH 2/2] Input: serio_raw - return error code instead of written on error
    Even if an error occurs and error code is set, serio_raw_write() returns
    the amount of bytes written anyway.

    If this behavior is actually desirable, serio_raw_write() should not
    even bother to set the error code because it is not intended to be
    returned to the caller.
