I used checkpatch script, and it didn’t showed these errors. Probably checkpatch script versions are different. I am using the one from 5.0-rc4

Failure returned from dma submit will be returned by i2c xfer message and using EIO here as dmaengine_prep_slave_single can result in multiple failures (invalid segment length, failing dma desc allocation, dma length/memory check, no available dma sg-reg)
As per I2C fault codes, EIO can be used indicating when something went wrong during performing IO operation.

Using EINVAL doesn’t suit if failure is from allocation and using ENOMEM doesn’t suit if failure is due to length/memory, segment length check.

Will use FORCE_CONTIGUOUS.

Will switch to use dma_alloc_attrs with CONTIGUOUS

Somehow Checkscript didn’t showed this either when I ran. Probably due to diff script versions. I am using the one from 5.0-rc4.
