OK, fair enough.

Looks much better, but I just noticed that we are missing calls to
sparse_keymap_free(dell_wmi_aio_input_dev) in both probe error handling
path and in remove method (they shoudl be called before unregistering
the device).

Also, can we have probe routine more streamlined, like this:

static int __init dell_wmi_aio_init(void)
{
	int err;
	char *guid;

	guid = dell_wmi_aio_find();
	if (!guid) {
		pr_error("No known WMI GUID found\n");
		return -ENXIO;
	}

	err = dell_wmi_aio_input_setup();
	if (err)
		return err;

	err = wmi_install_notify_handler(guid, dell_wmi_aio_notify, NULL);
	if (err) {
		pr_err("Unable to register notify handler - %d\n", err);
		sparse_keymap_free(dell_wmi_aio_input_dev);
		input_unregister_device(dell_wmi_aio_input_dev);
		return err;
	}

	return 0;
}

Thanks.
