For a long function like this, I'd rather keep a single return point at
the end. Something like this:

 		}
-		if (i == 8)
-			return -ENOMEM;
+		if (i == 8) {
+			ret = -ENOMEM;
+			goto out;
+		}
 	}
...
 
+out:
 	spin_unlock_irqrestore(&hsotg->lock, flags);
 	return ret;
 }

Care to respin the patch like that?
