Subject[PATCH] parport: Revert "parport: fix memory leak"
This reverts commit 23c405912b88 ("parport: fix memory leak")

par_dev->state was already being removed in parport_unregister_device().

Reported-by: Ying Huang <>
Signed-off-by: Sudip Mukherjee <>

But I am surprised at two points:
1) Why the error came while loading the gs_fpgaboot module?
Maybe the double freeing has freed some memory which fpga was
2) Why the dmesg showed "panel: could not claim access to parport0. Aborting."?
Because of 50566ac87065 ("parport: check exclusive access before
register") the panel driver should not even register and it
should have failed at parport_register_dev_model().
