Subject: [PATCH v5 0/7] platform/chrome: cros_ec_proto: Convert EC error codes to Linux error codes

The EC reports a variety of error codes. Most of those, with the exception
of EC_RES_INVALID_VERSION, are converted to -EPROTO. As result, the actual
error code gets lost. In cros_ec_cmd_xfer_status(), convert all EC errors
to Linux error codes to report a more meaningful error to the caller to aid

To prepare for this change, handle error codes other than -EPROTO for all
callers of cros_ec_cmd_xfer_status(). Specifically, no longer assume that
-EPROTO reflects an error from the EC and all other error codes reflect a
transfer error.

v2: Add patches 1/4 to 3/4 to handle callers of cros_ec_cmd_xfer_status()
v3: Add patches 4/6 and 5/6 to handle additional callers of
    Implement function to convert error codes
v4: Add coments describing the functionality of cros_ec_num_pwms().
    Add patch 7/7 to clean up cros_ec_num_pwms() after the new error code
    support has been implemented.
    Rebased series to v5.8.
v5: If there is no error, cros_ec_cmd_xfer_status() needs to return the
    number of received bytes, not 0. While fixing that (in patch 6/7),
    rearranged the function to reduce its indentation.
    Rebased series to v5.9-rc1
