How about editing it ? as following:
because following suggestion reduces the one checking behavior
when return value is -EPROBE_DEFER.

	if (PTR_ERR(palmas_usb->id_gpiod) == -EPROBE_DEFER) {
		return -EPROBE_DEFER;
	} else if (IS_ERR(palmas_usb->id_gpiod)) {
		dev_err(&pdev->dev, "failed to get id gpio\n");
		return PTR_ERR(palmas_usb->id_gpiod);
	}

ditto.

Thanks for explaining the example.
