Let's start talking about the patchset again.

I know all of this code is rather distasteful but it's only purpose
is to fix a bunch of crashes in a code path that was supposed to be working,
namely the removal of a platform device, in the supposedly well supported
ARM OMAP arch.

Can we agree to at least not crashing until we get to a consensus about
fixing the whole mess properly? This will take at least a few minor
kernel revisions while in the meantime users get crashes everyday.
