    If for some reason the device stops responding, and the device reset
    fails to recover the device, the MMIO register read data structure
    will not be reinitialized.

    On driver removal, the driver will also try to reset the device, but
    this time the MMIO data structure will be NULL.

    To solve this issue, perform the device reset in the remove function
    only if the device is running.

    Do you have an example of the NULL pointer dereference that you can
    paste in? It can be helpful for those searching for a fix for a bug
    they've experienced.
