Tabs and spaces.

Probably a bit paranoid for a callback, but doesn't really matter.

It's actually pretty rare to have a device that reports and error.
Many just saturate.  So it's probably fine to mimic that here as long
as the issue is definitely saturation rather than some other error.
If it's another error, don't push data and log some sort of message.
Unfortunately there isn't really a standard interface for
reporting hardware faults in these sort of devices.

From what you have said I'll assume we are just looking at overflow
so can mimic saturation. In which case what you have done is fine.

That's not that unusual.  It's fine to calculate the values
returned as needed, or pick from a selection of options.

I think I mentioned in a later thread, that's in linux-next now.
Though there was a bit of a messup where we added it then accidentally broke
it again, then fixed it finally.
