Hi Sebastian! Commenting calling lp55xx_reset_device function did not
helped. Still getting that error.
Tony, Peter, Jarkko: can you reproduce this problem? I'm really stucked
here... do not know where is problem or how to fix it. What we know that
it happens when rebooting from stock Nokia kernel (2.6.28) to upstream.
