I tried it briefly, and it made no difference with the issue I am having.
When disconnecting the gps receiver with a fd still open on it, it still
gives an oops on closing it without the sysfs patch. The sysfs patch
eliminates the oops, but I wasn't getting an oops without your patch if I
include the sysfs patch. Anyway, I have over 200k of debugging output, so
I'll send it to you off list.
