    This patch looks bogus.

    Why do you introduce a "dev->is_added" field that apparently has to match
    the old "list_empty(&dev->global_list)" 1:1 anyway?

    In other words: when is it *ever* permissible for "is_added" to have a
    different value from the "list_empty(..)" logic? And if they must always
    match (and it looks like they have to, since you set and clear the flag
    exactly when you add/remove it from the list), then what exactly is this
    supposed to fix?
