I have two comments here.

(1) I think the reference counter of the device will be leaked if
(dev == NULL) && (dev->slot != NULL). We need pci_dev_put() whenever
dev is not NULL.

(2) When the slot is empty, the 'dev' will be always NULL. Therefore,
'tmp_slot' will be always NULL on the empty slot here. Because of
this, the following code to rename the slot will not work on the
empty slot, I think.

Thanks,
