Hi,

If you look at "drivers/staging/iio/meter/ade7854-(i2c|spi).c", you will
find a line like this: " st->write_reg = ade7854_(i2c|spi)_write_reg;".
Than, if you go through the "ade7854_i2c_write_reg" (focus only on i2c
for while) you will see "i2c_master_send(st->i2c, st->tx, count)",
which can returns a positive number that does not necessary means an
error. If you find the same for the spi case, you will end up in the
function "spi_sync_transfer" that only return 0 for success or negative
for failure. So, handling the negative case better fit the i2c and spi case.

Thanks
