IMHO, if you do this, you should rework the function so that there is a single unlock call
at the end, not a separate one in in error label.

Could e.g. change this:

         ret = bmc150_accel_set_power_state(data, false);
         mutex_unlock(&data->mutex);
         if (ret < 0)
                 return ret;

         return IIO_VAL_INT;
}

To:

         ret = bmc150_accel_set_power_state(data, false);
         if (ret < 0)
                 goto unlock;

	ret = IIO_VAL_INT;
unlock:
         mutex_unlock(&data->mutex);

         return ret;
}

And also use the unlock label in the other cases, this is actually
quite a normal pattern. I see little use in a patch like this if there
are still 2 unlock paths after the patch.

Hans
