Thanks for that nice cleanup. It's most welcome.
Just one question and a small nit:

Why are you downgrading the error message from KERN_ERR to KERN_DEBUG
here? I would think that condition would warrant a message with
KERN_ERR severity.
Also, the driver does KERN_DEBUG output uniformly through the gig_dbg
macro, so if you are sure it should be turned into a debug message
then please write it as

	gig_dbg(DEBUG_IF, "%s: no cardstate", __func__);

like four lines later.
