The bug was introduced by the patch as it used (tried to free) the codec pointer
before it was assigned any value. It happened only if the card was missing and
I didn't test the driver on such a configuration. My mistake. The CONFIG_PNP
setting makes no difference.

Please hold your axe until Monday. The last patch (not posted yet) from the
unification of the WSS library series removes some ifdefs in this driver.
This may (or may not) change your view on splitting the driver.
