    Yes. Except that if hwif is NULL, we'll have other oopses since we access
    that in other places.

    Why _is_ hwif NULL anyway? That's another, unrelated thing, and should
    probably have a separate check and an early return.

    So there's two unrelated issues: hwif being NULL is a serious error
    regardless of any node issues, and pci_dev being NULL just means we aren't
    a PCI device.
