I see the comment above snd_ctl_remove() that says you must hold
the write lock.  And given that, this seems correct to me.

I understand why you want to take the lock just once, rather
than each time snd_ctl_remove() is called.

However I believe the acquisition and release of the lock
belongs inside gbaudio_remove_controls(), not in its caller.

If you disagree, can you please explain why?

In general if the function returns an error and has a loop inside,
taking a lock in the caller side avoids the forgotten unlock.

But taking the lock in the called function makes the
caller not need to take the lock (which would be even
more valuable if there were more than one caller).

I prefer having the lock acquisition in the called
function.  Please send version 2, as I suggested.



Otherwise, will you please submit version two, taking the
lock inside gbaudio_remove_controls()?
