Thank you for an update!

As a separate patch to have a kernel doc for this, there are plenty of
examples in the kernel, but I will show below an example

/**
 * struct foo - private data for the MLX90632 device
 * @client: I2C client of the device
 * @bar: ...
 ...
 */
struct foo {
  struct i2c_client *client;
  ... bar;
  ...
};

So, just to point out what the difference between & and &&  (even for
boolean): the former one forces both sides of operand to be executed,
while && checks for only first in case of false.

Again the same question, do you need all these castings?

These 17, 18 and 19 should be defined with descriptive names.

Again, please use

unsigned int tries = 4; // or should be 5?

do {
  ...
} while (ret != ..._ LAST_CHANNEL && --tries);
if (!tries)
  ...

It will really make the code easier to read.

It would be nice to have a comment on this voodoo arithmetics.
