How many times do i have to say it, no wrappers. This makes it a lot
less obvious you are throwing away the error code from dm9051_xfer().

If ret < 0 you probably have had an SPI error, -EIO, or maybe -ETIMEDOUT?

So please add a comment explaining why it is O.K. to return these
values when you probably cannot even talk to the device.

And here you should be returning the error code. And whatever called
dm9051_getreg() needs to deal with that error code, probably returning
it to its caller, etc.

dm9051_iow() returns an error code. You should check for an error, and
return it. dm9051_mdio_read() already does the correct thing, passing
the error code along. The MDIO core will then pass the error along to
phylib, and phylib will probably report the error to user space and
probably disable the PHY, since the PHY is no longer accessible. That
is how error handling should work.

Since you still do not have the trivial things correct, i've not done
a deep review yet. I would not expect this driver to be merged very
soon, and until somebody does make a deeper review, there could be
more serious things wrong with this driver, like locking.
