Subject: [PATCH] ipmi: Fix I2C client removal in the SSIF driver

From: Corey Minyard <cminyard@...sta.com>

The SSIF driver was removing any client that came in through the
platform interface, but it should only remove clients that it
added.  On a failure in the probe function, this could result
in the following oops when the driver is removed and the
client gets unregistered twice:

So track the clients that the SSIF driver adds and only remove
those.

George, your fix was close, but not quite right.  The following
should fix the problem, obvious in hindsight :-).  Thanks for working
with me on this.
