The idea was that if a write returned an error then do not even attempt
more writes. So if a write fails we do not loose the original error
code, assuming subsequent write would also fail.

I have looked through all the panel drivers now, and the majority does
not check if the write goes wrong.
So following the pattern on the other panels you can also decide to just
ignore the return value of mipi_dsi_dcs_write() rahter than trying to
invent the check I tried to explain.
