It would be better also add the detail info replace of "updates".

  If it related with this patch please add the fix info into the commit 
log and delete the useless statement in the begin.

make sense, and what about below "hw->adapter_closed = 0;", should it be 
after the success of the init process.

When close dev, it will stop dev and free queues, but you don't involve 
the process of free queues here,  and you check the 
"hw->adapter_stopped" before, so if it had stopped and then close, why 
it will report some errors of some useless process?
