I seem to miss that. Please point me in the right direction.

Please point me in the right direction on this one, too. It is pretty common to pass error codes up, as it is also mentioned in [1].
Yet, this thread in [1] seems more like a draft to me, as Greg K-H wrote in the end: "Fair enough, care to respin this and send it out to me for review?"
