This is fine to be squashed into my patch. In the long run: in a remove
callback dev->driver cannot be NULL, so this if could go away.

Maybe the return type for this function pointer can be changed to void,
too.

I will add these changes to a v2 that I plan to send out after the dust
settles some more.
