Few commets below.

So, why it's global?

ret is redundant variable in this function.

Extra braces.
Use antipattern here.

No need to do & 0xff, since return type is byte.

When will it happen?
Moreover, ret is redundant.

Extra braces in second part of condition.
Use antipattern.

Usually ret variable is located at the end of definition block.
Moreover, there is no relationship between those three. It means one
line per variable.

Please, be consistent, somewhere you still use &pdev->dev.
I recomend to use &pdev->dev everywhere in probe(), since we don't
know if the device will be probed successfully.

Plain return here and in entire function where it applies.

Redundant message. You have not to duplicate this.

Any benifit of (un)likely in probe()?

Remove those two and empty lines.
