Thanks for the patch. I've already acked the same fix here:

priv->entry is an array of crashlog devices. i is the index to a resource for a
single device. It is correct that i cannot also be used, as it was here, to
refer to the device in the array. This is because we will skip some devices we
detect as unsupported without failing probe. So the array only contains a list
of devices we've added and may be less than the total available. This doesn't
affect probe or device usage, but it did affect remove since the current code
left gaps in the array where devices were skipped.

Not shown is num_entries++ which happens only after successful addition of an
entry. It's not the case that the same entry gets reused over all resources.

num_entries cannot be used out of bounds. The array is allocated with
struct_size to the total number of resources.
