You got me wrong. Getting an argument to rediscuss %de is just a minor
side reason for me. Getting an expressive error message is the relevant

There is also an inconsitence in what you suggest that I don't like. If
in a probe function devm_clk_get fails it should say "-ENODEV" but if
it's clk_enable that fails it should say "-5"?

Also "we stick with what was working since forever" is a poor argument.
