Subject: Re: [PATCH] leds: fix a potential NULL pointer dereference

Hi Linus,

Yesterday I submitted pull request [0] containing this patch, but
the patch turns out to be pointless. Since I see my pull request merged
on top of mainline trunk I suspect it will not be a problem to
drop the patch or even whole pull request. In the latter case I'll
re-submit it for -rc4.

Sorry for the confusion.

Best regards,
Jacek Anaszewski
