the BUG() trace
Hi, it looks like the merge from fb091be08d1acf184e8801dfdcace6e0cb19b1fe has introduced a regression, when the ttpci module is loaded at boot up a get a kernel BUG() about null pointer derferencing. info attached.
i've been riding latest from git for the past couple weeks but only saw this in the past week or so, so i'm strongly suspecting that it came from the above mentioned commit. i believe others have seen this too:

lspci -v output
Could you please check if this patch solves the issue?
I just pulled from the linux-2.6 remote (which has merged this commit), and no longer see the error.
In fact I had just spent the last 15 minutes reviewing the merges since the last update and come to the same conclusion that it was probably this commit that had fixed it... so I say we consider it fixed unless heard otherwise from someone else :)
