Will do in a minute.

It could go in 2.6.27, certainly, but I wouldn't say it *must* go
there. The patch is "only" fixing an error path, which by definition
isn't supposed to be needed unless something unexpected happens, in
which case the driver probably won't work anyway. So it doesn't deserve
delaying 2.6.27, and sending a pull request to Linus for just that
patch would probably be overkill. But if you get the opportunity to
send such a pull request for another problem, then it makes sense to
include this cs4270 fix as well.

Anyway it's really up to you and Timur. I just happened to notice the
bug and posted a fix, but I'm not even using the driver myself.

OK, sorry about that. I'll try to make things clearer next time.
