My comment was mostly to show which kind of information may be useful.
Sometimes I write it myself. You are welcome to write it in order I add it
or you can send a v3.

Other note: the function names are avoided in commit titles as they are
redundant with the title prefix and not so easy to read.
The title could be
	bonding: fix crash on initialization error
or, to include other fixes,
	bonding: fix device initialization error handling
