This function does a NULL check on the passed argument
struct most_component, berfore it calls list_add_tail().
So the dereferenced pointer must be the struct list_head
comp_list of the core.

which is weird, as the list_head used here is not dynamically
allocated and INIT_LIST_HEAD is definitely being called in the
__init function most_init() of the core module before its first
usage.

I've never seen the code failing at this point, nor has this
being reported by anyone yet.

Need to investigate.

thanks,
Chris
