    Thanks a lot for splitting up the patch. I don't mind redoing the
    second part of the patch, but I'm not sure if it's actually needed to
    prevent memory leaks. This piece of code serves as an example:

    + sysfs_remove_bin_file(&f_dev->kobj, &fw_priv->attr_data);

    Perhaps device_unregister() call above already removes the kobj which
    makes the added sysfs_remove_bin_file() unnecessary?
