Missed this point. Makes sense. My previous comment about return value
in mtk_rng_read is invalid as I based it on a wrong assumption.

retval can be 0 only when mkt_rng_wait_ready fails, returning 0 when
wait is true is confusing. Expected return value when 0 bytes is read
from device and wait is true is not clearly documented.

"return retval || !wait ? retval : -EIO;" is also fine.

Overall the code looks good to me. You can add:
