Yes, I will document from where this number came.

I was trying to avoid looking into a response structure to keep the
flexibility; e.g if SNP firmware changes a response format then we don't
need to have any changes in the driver. The userspace should be able to
deal with it and it can check the "status" or a new field etc.
