SubjectRe: [PATCH] hp-wmi: add return value checking for input_allocate_device()
Date
Hi,

it's incredible how much cleanups and fixes you find in this
handful of drivers... It's very much appreciated!

But also hp_wmi_input_setup() call should get checked and if it
fails, the previous wmi_install_notify_handler() must get uninstalled
again. Hm, probably the whole driver shouldn't load then and
the error code from hp_wmi_input_setup() can be returned in
hp_wmi_init(void).

Do you mind to incorporate above if you agree.

Thanks,

Thomas
