Im getting a warning message when building with gcc 4.6.0
CC drivers/acpi/glue.o
drivers/acpi/glue.c: In function 'acpi_bind_one':
drivers/acpi/glue.c:163:7: warning: variable 'ret' set but not used

The below fixes it for me. Please have a look when you have
time and let me know(bit confused with the backwardness of
&acpi_dev->dev.kobj, &dev->kobji with these two ret's)
