SubjectPATCH: linux-2.4.10-pre14/drviers/net/irda/toshoboe.c module segfaults at removal if hardware absent
ignored the return value from pci_module_init() at module
load time, and then unconditionally calls pci_unregister_module
when the module is unloaded (even if the driver is not registered,
due to pci_module_init failing). I have verified that this results
in a kernel null pointer dereference if you load and unload this
module on a system lacking the toshboe hardware.

The following trivial patch fixes the problem by aborting
the module initialization if pci_module_init fails.

Please apply.
