Hehe, I was just reviewing this code internally, so I can answer that one :)

It happens when fbdev is disabled (which is the case for Chrome OS).
Even though intialization of the fbdev part is optional (it's done in
udlfb_create which is the callback for fb_probe()), the teardown isn't
optional (udl_driver_unload -> udl_fbdev_cleanup ->
udl_fbdev_destroy).

Note that udl_fbdev_cleanup *tries* to be conditional (you can see it
does if (!udl->fbdev)) but that doesn't work, because udl->fbdev is
always set during udl_fbdev_init.
