Also, there seems to be a basic response time that needs to be respected, so I added back a small fixed delay after each write operation. I also took the liberty to reduce the number of status reads, and clean up error handling. Checkpatch is happy with this version.

G'day Henrik,

Which kernel was this based on? It won't apply to my 5.9 tree.

I assume the sprinkling of udelay(APPLESMC_MIN_WAIT) means the SMC is
slow in getting its status register set up. Could we instead just put
a single one of those up-front in wait_status?

Any chance you could try this one? I've added a retry to send_command and
added a single global APPLESMC_MIN_WAIT before each status read.

From looking at your modified send_command, it appears the trigger for a
retry is sending a command and the SMC doing absolutely nothing. This
should do the same thing.

Interestingly enough, by adding the udelay to wait_status on my machine I've
gone from 24 reads/s to 50 reads/s.

I've left out the remainder of the cleanups. Once we get a minimally working
patch I was going to look at a few cleanups, and I have some patches pending
to allow writing to the SMC from userspace (for setting BCLM and BFCL mainly)
