This line is confusing. Did you guys author this patch together?

My guess is that this line should be dropped and the RB and TB tags
should remain? If it was reviewed too, perhaps an AB too?

This is pretty ugly, and isn't it suffering from over-bracketing? My
suggestion would be to break out the invocation of
of_property_read_u32() from the if and test only the result.

of_property_read_u32(node, "num-interpolated-steps", &num_steps);
if (!ret && num_steps) {

I haven't checked the underling code, but is it even feasible for
of_property_read_u32() to not succeed AND for num_steps to be set?

If not, the check for !ret if superfluous and you can drop it.

Why break the line here?
