Your description doesn't match your code. You say you're clearing
evdev->dev driver data but...

that a mistake? (Hint: that's not what you uploaded on the Chromium OS
instance, where you presumably tested this.)

And if you're really trying to do what your commit message says:

We're having two different files fight over who owns the edev drvdata?
That seems like a big no-no.

We should work out who's the real owner of 'drvdata', and find some
other solution for the others.
