Thanks..
I suspect we should just remove the
   if (!dev)
       return

I should probably get rid of w1_bq27000_write as it is totally unused, and I
need to hold a lock in w1_bq27000_read or I can get really bad things
happening if two threads try to rad the status at the same time.

Ho hum.

Thanks,
NeilBrown
