    Sweet!

    As-per the in-kernel documentation, I now get to mock you for doing
    this :)

    Please NEVER DO THIS, you are ignoring the messages that the kernel
    sends you when you remove one of these devices, and causing a memory
    leak.

    Not nice at all, yet another reason to use a 'struct device'.

    thanks,
