What's the concrete benefit from having few functions which return void
instead of 'return 0'? For me the benefit would have to be significant
justifying the code churn and the time used.

Please stop fixing the design (unless you are the driver maintainer or
asked specifically by one) as that doesn't really benefit anyone,
actually the opposite. Instead focus on fixing actual bugs. But if you
have no means for testing your fixes then stick to compiler warnings and

For example, didn't I suggest you about fixing all sparse warnings in
wireless code? I would be very happy to get such patches as we really
would want to be sparse warning free.
