For an KOBJ_ADD you'd return an error.

grep -r "= kobject_uevent(" *
drivers/misc/cxl/sysfs.c:	rc = kobject_uevent(&cr->kobj, KOBJ_ADD);
drivers/uio/uio.c:		ret = kobject_uevent(&map->kobj, KOBJ_ADD);
drivers/uio/uio.c:		ret = kobject_uevent(&portio->kobj, KOBJ_ADD);
drivers/visorbus/visorchipset.c:	res = 
kobject_uevent(&chipset_dev->acpi_device->dev.kobj, KOBJ_ONLINE);
drivers/visorbus/visorchipset.c:	int res = 
kobject_uevent(&chipset_dev->acpi_device->dev.kobj,

For a KOBJ_CHANGE I guess we could print an error

if (kobject_uevent(&sw->dev.kobj, KOBJ_CHANGE)
     dev_err(&sw->dev, "failed to signal USB role-switch uevent\n");

Nobody else seems that bothered about it.

grep -r "if (kobject_uevent(" *

I think probably not. the mutex serializes the notification. In theory 
outside the mutex you could get an out-of-order notification.

The main reason I put it where it is, is we already test ret and should 
only notify the change, when the role-switch has suceeded.

As I say, in theory anyway, the mutex enforces the signalling, whatever 
about the reception, of the role-switch change, so IMO inside the bounds 
of the mutex is the right place to put it.
