I looked at the function vchiq_mmal_port_parameter_set, which calls
another function for setting the port parameters, which inturns sends an
synchronous message. If it is able to send the message successfully, it
returns 0. It can also fail and can return any other value. Also the
function ctrl_set_bitrate is not evaluated anywhere for true or false,
so it is safe to return the value we get from
vchiq_mmal_port_parameter_set instead of returning 0 always.

I will change the code to return the value from
vchiq_mmal_port_parameter_set directly.
