Sweet!

As-per the in-kernel documentation, I now get to mock you for doing
this :)

Please NEVER DO THIS, you are ignoring the messages that the kernel
sends you when you remove one of these devices, and causing a memory
leak.

Not nice at all, yet another reason to use a 'struct device'.

thanks,
