thanks Greg for your patience and time to redo this patch. I saw you broke it into two - three different patches.
But just one doubt, was your compiler showing any warning for the patch - "Staging: sm750fb: provide error path for
hw_sm750le_setBLANK()" , commit id - e74ac550298ec4635cc32e99f966568a808fd370 . my compiler didnot show any warning for that.
mine is gcc 4.7.3, is it time to update?

thanks again, and sorry that you had to do fix this. I should have made the patches in a more proper way.
