Makes sense, thanks for fixing this!

Not sure if this comment needs to be updated / amended.

I would write it as:

	status = ipc_read_status(scu);
	if (status & IPC_STATUS_BUSY)
		return 0;
	if (status & IPC_STATUS_ERR)
		return -EIO;

	return 0;

Also would be good, in case you are not doing it yet, to use --patience when
formatting your patches.
