Subject[PATCH] Fix bug in v4l core for 2.6.0-test3-bk
Hi,

When working on converting the usb v4l drivers to the new v4l class
changes, I ran into this nasty bug. Seems that the core was using a
structure after it had been freed. The patch below fixes it.

If you don't mind, I'll include it with some USB patches in a send to
Linus, as my USB fixes will not work without it.

thanks,

greg k-h
