When dasd_eckd_check_characteristics() failed here,

if (!private) {
private = kzalloc(sizeof(*private), GFP_KERNEL | GFP_DMA);
if (!private) {
dev_warn(&device->cdev->dev,
 "Allocating memory for private DASD data "
 "failed\n");
return -ENOMEM;
}
device->private = private;

The device->private is NULL.

Then, in dasd_eckd_uncheck_device(), it will return immediately.

if (!private)
return;
