Hi Yizhuo,

like for the your patch in IIO trigger regmap_read could only failed
if the hardware block is no more clocked and in this case we won't
return of regmap_read.
Testing regmap_read() return value just add code but doesn't provide a
valid information.
If you really want to log all the possible errors cases please do it in
regmap code itself and
not in *all* the drivers.
