Hi Thomas,

Here's a few ..

I don't like this ..

This is sort of on the right track, I like that the ehea_h_.. routines
are basically just hypercalls, but there's a few things wrong. You're
walking a linked list, which is asking for trouble, if a single pointer
is corrupted you'll walk off into lala land. Then you're pulling fields
out of structs via pointers, again hoping that they're all valid. Then
you walk another linked list .. And then you're pulling bits out of the
adapter again.

Ideally it would look like this:

static u64 things_to_free[];

void ehea_crash_deregister(void)
{
for (i = 0; i < num_things_to_free; i++)
h_call_free_a_thing(things_to_free[i]);
}

Your naming is a little confusing here, you're registering the
deregister function. I think I get it, you're unregistering the fw
handles, but perhaps ehea_crash_shutdown() would be clearer.

You don't need ret if that's all you're going to do with it.
