ACK. If you agree with the style nit, squash in right away.
Also: As this is a dependency for a bug fix PR, I think this should go in despite soft feature freeze. (And this PR isn't scary either, especially due to proper unit testing.)
> + * The RSSI calculation is based on the IEEE 802.15.4 2020 specification and
+ * it's represented as one octet of integer.
+ * RSSI equal to zero maps to -174 dBm and has the same scale as dBm (1 RSSI
+ * step == 1 dBm). Therefore an RSSI value of 254 maps to +80 dBm.
+ * @param[in] dbm RF power in dBm scale.
+ * @return RF power in RSSI scale.
+static inline uint8_t ieee802154_dbm_to_rssi(int16_t dbm)
+ const int min = IEEE802154_RADIO_RSSI_OFFSET;
+ const int max = min + (UINT8_MAX - 1);
+ int val = dbm <= min ? min : dbm >= max ? max : dbm;
int val = dbm <= min ? min : (dbm >= max ? max : dbm);
I personally think braces here increase readability. Feel free to ignore, if you disagree.
