One issue I see here is that if we were to later convert
cros_ec_cmd_xfer_status() to cros_ec_cmd(), we would lose the
s_cmd->result value, since I was hoping to avoid returning msg->result
via a pointer parameter. I don't know if userspace actually uses that, but I
am assuming it does.

So, should cros_ec_cmd() keep the *result pointer like so ?:

int cros_ec_cmd(struct cros_ec_device *ec, u32 version, u32 command,
void *outdata, u32 outsize, void *indata, u32 insize, u32 *result);

This way, we can manually re-populate s_cmd->result with |*result|.

Or, should we drop msg->result while returning s_cmd to userspace? I am
guessing the answer is no, but thought I'd check with you first.

Best regards,
