char/ipmi: fix OOPS caused by pnp_unregister_driver on unregistered driver
Corey Minyard [Thu, 10 Feb 2011 22:08:38 +0000 (16:08 -0600)]
This patch fixes an OOPS triggered when calling modprobe ipmi_si a
second time after the first modprobe returned without finding any ipmi
devices.  This can happen if you reload the module after having the
first module load fail.  The driver was not deregistering from PNP in
that case.

Peter Huewe originally reported this patch and supplied a fix, I have a
different patch based on Linus' suggestion that cleans things up a bit
more.
