Aren't you returning holding the 'dytc_mutex' mutex?

>From what I understand, in the first line of this function you get the lock,
and release later, at the exit, so, returning without releasing the lock might
be dangerous. Here is a summary of how I read this function with your change:


	mutex_lock_interruptible(&dytc_mutex);
	...
	err = dytc_command(cmd, &output);
	if (err)
		return err;

unlock:
	mutex_unlock(&dytc_mutex);
	return err;


I think "goto unlock" might solve it.
