Hi,

Barnabás made some good points which I missed.

See me reply inline.

Good point and the same applies to patch 1/3.

Good question.

Well dgpu_disable_check_present() does already contain:

		if (err == -ENODEV)
			return 0;

IOW it only returns an error on unexpected errors and asus_wmi_add()
already contains a couple of other foo_present() checks which are
dealt with in the same way, so this is consistent with that and
being consistent is good, so I think this is fine.

Regards,

Hans
