Hi Tang,

The patch looks overall good, though I think it could be split into two
pieces: one for simplifying ret declaration and another for removing the
check after device register.
Despite that, I guess Lucas might already be working on similar changes.
https://lore.kernel.org/linux-iio/cover.1620766020.git.lucas.p.stankus@gmail.com/

As general advice, I would recommend avoiding using generic words such
as fix in the subject line. It's often better to say something about the
nature of what is being done.

Best regards,

Marcelo
