Indeed.

Well, usually there is no error so adding the error number is not of much
use (except for debugging)... The most likely one seems to be -EPROBE_DEFER.

On the omap5 boards where I have seen the error message being printed they were
EPROBE_DEFER.

So your proposal changes the subject (which has a very small focus).
