Subject[PATCH 8/16][BUG] PCI slot: Fix invalid memory access (Not for mainline!)
Fix kernel oops in pci_release_slot() when dbg() is enabled.

The dbg() in pci_release_slot() cause a kernel oops (invalid memory
access) because it accesses slot after it is released. We need to
access slot before calling kobject_put().
