This is not right. It should be returning a proper error code.

Could you please patch ddb_class_create() in order to make it to
return the retuned value from IS_ERR() as the error code, and return
it back to the init code?

Ok, I noticed that other parts of the driver are also returning wrong
error codes, but let's fix at least module_init_ddbridge() while you're
looking into this.

Again, the correct here would be to store the error on a temp register
and return it, instead of returning -1.

On userspace, ioctl() always return -1 on errors. The error code at "errno"
is wrong, though. Instead of "1", it should be the ones described at the
API spec[1].
