The subsequent patch which I was referring to is:

Since this second patch was for the input subsystem I decided to just
make them separate patches instead of creating a series. However, based
on Dmitry's feedback it was determined that the second patch wasn't a
good idea and it won't be applied. This first patch is enough to fix the
issue by preventing the call to rmi_unregister_transport_device() if the
subsequent call to register failed. The only change I would make to this
patch would be to remove the last sentence of the comment. If you choose
to apply that patch then would this be a change you would make? Or would
you prefer I submit a v2 with this update?
