Subject[patch 19/33] bay: exit if notify handler cannot be installed
2.6.25-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us
know.

------------------
From: Holger Macht <hmacht@suse.de>

commit 7efd52a407bed6a2b02015b8ebbff7beba155392 upstream

If acpi_install_notify_handler() for a bay device fails, the bay driver is
superfluous. Most likely, another driver (like libata) is already caring
about this device anyway. Furthermore,
register_hotplug_dock_device(acpi_handle) from the dock driver must not be
called twice with the same handler. This would result in an endless loop
consuming 100% of CPU. So clean up and exit.
