For now I asked in the arm linux irc channel and got two people replying
(both added to Cc:):

Mark Brown (maintainer of SPI, regmap, ASoC and regulator) said:

1567019926 < broonie> ukleinek: I think that's a great idea and have
thought about trying to implement it in the past.
1567019937 < broonie> ukleinek: Making the logs more directly readable
is enormously helpful.

and Alexandre Belloni (arm/at91, mips/microsemi, rtc) said:

1567021451 < abelloni> ukleinek: seems good to me but it would probably
be better to be able to generate the list

(I fully agree to the wish to generate the list, as I already wrote
before, I don't have a good idea how to do that without generating
C-Code by some means which is ugly and also complicated by the fact that
there are several locations (at least for now) that have definitions for
error codes.)

Best regards
