I reproduced the segfault here. It looks like i2c_del_driver() tries
to call w83781d_detach_client() more than once now, partly because of
the safe list fix in 2.5.70-bk11. But that function should only be
called for the "primary" client, not the subclients.

The quick/ugly patch below fixes the symptom, but maybe not the disease.
There might be more fundamental brokenness in the whole subclient scheme.
I'll keep looking when I get the chance.
