Well, what would be the improvement?
It needs an additional variable and makes the change more complex.

The main suggestion by Chanwoo Choi was to move the check for EPROBE_DEFER
outside of the IS_ERR() because checking this first and then for EPROBE_DEFER
is not necessary.

If acceptable I'd prefer my last proposal. It just adds 2 LOC before
and without touching the existing if (IS_ERR(...)).

If the compiler is clever it can cache palmas_usb->id_gpiod in a register
which serves the same purpose as the status variable.

BR and thanks,
