SubjectRe: [PATCH] [DRIVER MODEL] Fix depca
Release code in driver modules is a potential cause of oopsen.
The device may be in use by a userspace process, which will keep
a reference to the device. If the module is unloaded, the module
text will be freed. Subsequently, when the last reference is
dropped, the release code will be called, which no longer exists.

Use generic platform device allocation/release code in modules.
