This is exactly why I2C_SLAVE_WRITE_RECEIVED allows for an error code.
From the docs:



  'val': bus driver delivers received byte

  'ret': 0 if the byte should be acked, some errno if the byte should be nacked

Another I2C master has sent a byte to us which needs to be set in 'val'. If 'ret'
is zero, the bus driver should ack this byte. If 'ret' is an errno, then the byte
should be nacked.


'ret' is used to ACK/NACK the current byte in 'val'. That's exactly what
you need, or? Does the aspeed driver not support acking the current
