no, the check is pointless. Most of these are. Just look at your probe()
and you'll see that if dev->virt_addr is NULL (meaning ioremap_nocache()
failed) you exit from probe() with error. The driver doesn't probe at
all. So you can be sure that by remove, dev->regs is valid.

BTW, if probe fails, you have a TON of leaked resources!! You don't kfree()
dev, you don't pci_disable_device(), you don't release_mem_region(), you
don't iounmap() virt_addr, you don't free_irq().

Also the iounmap() call in remove is wrong. You ioremapped
dev->virt_addr but iounmap() dev->regs. Are you SURE that's ok ?

Man, what a mess! You gotta fix that up.

what happens if an IRQ fires after you iounmap() but before you
free_irq() ?

there you go
