Yes. In 10006651 (Oct 20, 2017), I thought:

irq = platform_get_irq(pdev, 0);
if (irq <= 0)
return -ENODEV;

was fine. In 11066455 (Aug 7, 2019), I said I thought I was wrong and
that:

platform_get_irq() is a generic interface and we have to be able to
interpret return values consistently. The overwhelming consensus
among platform_get_irq() callers is to treat "irq < 0" as an error,
and I think we should follow suit.
...
I think the best pattern is:

irq = platform_get_irq(pdev, i);
if (irq < 0)
return irq;

I still think what I said in 2019 is the right approach. I do see
your comment in 10006651 about this pattern:

if (virq <= 0)
return virq ? : -ENODEV;

but IMHO it's too complicated for general use. Admittedly, it's not
*very* complicated, but it's a relatively unusual C idiom and I
stumble over it every time I see it. If 0 is a special case I think
it should be mapped to a negative error in arch-specific code, which I
think is what Linus T suggested in [1].

I think there's still a large consensus that "irq < 0" is the error
case. In the tree today we have about 1400 callers of
platform_get_irq() and platform_get_irq_byname() [2]. Of those,
almost 900 check for "irq < 0" [3], while only about 150 check for
"irq <= 0" [4] and about 15 use some variant of a "irq ? : -ENODEV"
pattern.

The bottom line is that in drivers/pci, I'd like to see either a
single style or a compelling argument for why some checks should be
"irq < 0" and others should be "irq <= 0".
