Subject[CHECKER] race in 2.5.62/drivers/isdn/i4l/isdn_common.c?
Enclosed is a potential race in drv_stat_unload.  It seems suspicious:
- potentially a use-after-free (if put_drv deallocs)

- potentially a race where the global var drv->channels is used without
protection (or is this routine called with drivers_lock held?)
