    Subject[PATCH] [21/98] mmc: sdhci-pci: Fix error case in sdhci_pci_probe_slot()
    2.6.35-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

    From: Chris Ball <>

    commit 9fdcdbb0d84922e7ccda2f717a04ea62629f7e18 upstream.

    If pci_ioremap_bar() fails during probe, we "goto release;" and free the
    host, but then we return 0 -- which tells sdhci_pci_probe() that the probe
    succeeded. Since we think the probe succeeded, when we unload sdhci we'll
    go to sdhci_pci_remove_slot() and it will try to dereference slot->host,
    which is now NULL because we freed it in the error path earlier.

    The patch simply sets ret appropriately, so that sdhci_pci_probe() will
    detect the failure immediately and bail out.
