This is good, but all the other callers need to fixed as well:


   140  static int adp1653_get_ctrl(struct v4l2_ctrl *ctrl)
   141  {
   142          struct adp1653_flash *flash =
   143                  container_of(ctrl->handler, struct adp1653_flash, ctrls);
   144          int rval;
   145  
   146          rval = adp1653_get_fault(flash);
   147          if (rval)
   148                  return rval;
   149  
   150          ctrl->cur.val = 0;
   151  
   152          if (flash->fault & ADP1653_REG_FAULT_FLT_SCP)
                    ^^^^^^^^^^^^
flash->fault is the equivalent of "rval" for non-negative returns so
this condition can never be true.  We should never be returning these
weird firmware ADP1653_REG_FAULT_FLT_SCP fault codes to the v4l2 layers.

   153                  ctrl->cur.val |= V4L2_FLASH_FAULT_SHORT_CIRCUIT;
   154          if (flash->fault & ADP1653_REG_FAULT_FLT_OT)
   155                  ctrl->cur.val |= V4L2_FLASH_FAULT_OVER_TEMPERATURE;
   156          if (flash->fault & ADP1653_REG_FAULT_FLT_TMR)
   157                  ctrl->cur.val |= V4L2_FLASH_FAULT_TIMEOUT;
   158          if (flash->fault & ADP1653_REG_FAULT_FLT_OV)
   159                  ctrl->cur.val |= V4L2_FLASH_FAULT_OVER_VOLTAGE;
   160  
   161          flash->fault = 0;
   162  
   163          return 0;
   164  }
