    Is this issue still reproducible with current kernels? If so, could
    you report this upstream at bugzilla.kernel.org?

    I have no machine with newer kernels - need to check - i have just
    checkd the git log on cyclades.c and it seems this commit may have fixed
    it by rewriting large parts of the module/device init code:

    commit 3137553d3f78f12a077459ee59e4b17f8db9f0cf
    Author: Jiri Slaby
    Date: Tue May 8 00:37:04 2007 -0700

    Char: cyclades, probe cleanup

    - add fail paths
    - merge 3 similar initializations into one (Z, Ze, Y)

    [akpm@linux-foundation.org: build fix]

    I'll try to reproduce the bug on Monday ...
