    Subject[27/49] Drivers:hv: Fix a bug in vmbus_driver_unregister()
    3.2-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


    From: "K. Y. Srinivasan" <>

    commit 8f257a142fc3868d69de3f996b95d7bdbc509560 upstream.

    The function vmbus_exists() was introduced recently to deal with cases where
    the vmbus driver failed to initialize and yet other Hyper-V drivers attempted
    to register with the vmbus bus driver. This patch introduced a bug where
    vmbus_driver_unregister() would fail to unregister the driver. This patch
    fixes the problem.
