    As requested, here are the patchsets with the fixed subjects.
    The subjects aswell as the subject prefixes are more precise now.
    Hopefully that's ok.

    Patch 1:
    Makes the function typhoon_init_one() return a negative error code instead of 0.

    Patch 2 [Optional]:
    Makes the function typhoon_init_one() return the return value of the
    corresponding failing function calls instead of a "fixed" negative error code.

    With Regards,
    Milan and Thomas
