Accepted.

This variable is used to define a device ID number, "0,1,2,3..."
After all the changes it's meaningless.
Accepted.
Will be removed.

Accepted. My mistake.

It locks the statistical and state data related to errors in FEC.
Accepted

Yes it is.

Yes, in this patch.

This is size of a char buffer used to store a device name.

Accepted. 
Will print the error number.

Accepted.
Will remove this and return immediately.

The managed resources are used.
Anyway, I'll test for memory leak and search for the answer.
