SubjectRe: [PATCH] USB: add USB test and measurement class driver - round 2

This is an example of what I was discussing with Oliver. In all
likelihood you simply don't need usbtmc_mutex, and using it will cause
a lockdep violation.

That's why so many of the other USB class drivers don't have an
analogous static mutex.

You must never acquire a lock in your open method if it will be held
by your disconnect method while unregistering the minor.

You do call usb_register_dev() during probe...

But you don't call usb_unregister_dev() during disconnect. An
oversight?
