SubjectRe: [PATCH] hid Logitech G13 Driver 0.0.5
Hi Rick,

Please check how your driver behaves if the framebuffer is still in use
(open and/or mmapped) by some userspace process when you unplug the
keyboard.

Probably you will get hit be the same complaints from kernel I was seeing
with PicoLCD driver (see my patch http://lkml.org/lkml/2010/5/30/15 that
is expected to fix it on PicoLCD side, the refcounting part of the patch)
