While I can see that symbolic name instead of a numeric constant might
be appealing, I do not believe that we want fragments like this with
endless conversions between integer and pointer errors:

if (haptics->const_op_mode == DA7280_PWM_MODE) {
haptics->pwm_dev = devm_pwm_get(dev, NULL);
if (IS_ERR(haptics->pwm_dev)) {
error = PTR_ERR(haptics->pwm_dev);
if (error != -EPROBE_DEFER)
dev_err(dev, "unable to request PWM: %pE\n",
return error;

Maybe we should introduce something like '%de' for the integer error
case? In the meantime I would prefer using %d when we have integer
error. We should not see these error messages anyway ;)
