SubjectRe: [PATCH 12/24] media/video: fix dangling pointers

I feel I am missing something here. Why does clientdata have to be set to
NULL when we are tearing down the device anyway?

And if there is a good reason for doing this, then it should be done in
v4l2_device_unregister_subdev or even in the i2c core, not in each drivers.

And why does coccinelle apparently find this in e.g. cs5345.c but not in
saa7115.c, which has exactly the same construct? For that matter, I think
almost all v4l i2c drivers do this.

Regards,

Hans
