[PATCH 1/8] platform/chrome: cros_ec_proto: Report command not supported

From: Enric Balletbo i Serra
Date: Thu Feb 20 2020 - 10:59:22 EST

In practice most drivers that use the EC protocol what really care is if
the result was successful or not, hence, we introduced a
cros_ec_cmd_xfer_status() function that converts EC errors to standard
Linux error codes. On some few cases, though, we are interested on know
if the command is supported or not, and in such cases, just ignore the
error. To achieve this, return a -ENOTSUPP error when the command is not

This will allow us to finish the conversion of all users to use the
cros_ec_cmd_xfer_status() function instead of cros_ec_cmd_xfer() and
make the latest private to the protocol driver, so users of the protocol
are not confused in which function they should use.
