Yes you are right, I have the wrong return code in the get_timeleft
implementation. It should use ->a1 for the actual timeleft, a0 is for
the error code.

Here smcwd_call returns the error code, which is NOT_IMPLEMENTED if
the firmware does not implement timeleft. The timeleft itself cannot
return error codes else we would just return that there I guess.
