Ok, I will change this in v3. Given your statement, my understanding
is that I should avoid adding checks to make sure a valid driver
object was given as the stack trace information is all the handling
that is needed. If there is any further logic needed in that rule,
could you elaborate so that I don't make this mistake in the future,
or so that I don't add a check on a driver object in a case that I
should?

I did not add in this handling because the cpuidle_unregister_device()
call already has a "registered" check so extra handling seemed
unnecessary. But if you still think it is needed just let me know.

cpuidle_unregister_device()
{
...
if (dev->registered == 0)
return;
...
