    It's more broken than that. Here's my attempt. It boots on the
    systems with dock_station_count 0, and it boots on my laptop with
    dock_station_count 2; but I don't actually have any docking station,
    so it still doesn't test very much (dock is 0 after the loop).

    I have no idea if what goes on in the loop is correct, but it looks
    to me as if (as predicted) there's further breakage, that it would
    have been writing beyond the end of what it allocated if I did have
    a docking station.

    [PATCH] dock: fix bootup oops and other dock_link breakage

    dock_link_device() and dock_unlink_device() should bail out early
    to avoid oops on zero-length kmalloc() when dock_station_count is 0.

    But isn't there an off-by-one in that kmalloc() length anyway?
    An extra NULL appended at the end suggests so.

    Rework the ordering with gotos on failure to fix several issues.

    And presumably dock_unlink_device() should be presenting the same
    interface as dock_link_device(), with NULL returned when none found.
