Both of these are fairly unusual. The most common way to write it is
However, I now tend to prefer
ret = PTR_ERR_OR_ZERO(dwmac->m25_div_clk);
which is less likely to cause false-positive warnings when building
with -Wmaybe-uninitialized than any of the other ones.
Please don't use PTR_ERR_OR_ZERO() as a condition, that is what
IS_ERR() is meant for.
