Ian,

I have already gave a Reviewed-by signoff for this series.

After looking over the code I think a cleaner solution would be to:

1) Use comedi_legacy_detach() directly for the (*detach) in the
   legacy ISA driver.
2) Move the code from amplc_dio200_common_detach() into the
   (*detach) function for the PCI driver.
3) Remove the exported function amplc_dio200_common_detach().

Regards,
Hartley
