We don't actually want to disable the PCI device. Maybe it was already
enabled before the driver was loaded, and maybe the BIOS needs the
device when the system is being shut down. You'll notice that we do not
call pci_disable_device(dev) in ali1535_remove(), so there's no reason
to do it in the error path.

As a matter of fact the i2c-i801 driver, which is used on the same kind
of hardware, has the following note in its remove function:

* do not call pci_disable_device(dev) since it can cause hard hangs on
* some systems during power-off (eg. Fujitsu-Siemens Lifebook E8010)

So this is a nack from me, sorry.
