This won't work if the callback tries to unregister the device, but of
course the old code wouldn't work in that case either. We should
document this requirement. It means that your get_device and
put_device calls aren't needed.

Aside from that I don't see any problems. In principle there shouldn't
be any other processes running at this time that would want to access
either the device or the dpm_list. Maybe this means the socket locking
isn't needed in the pcmcia late-suspend and early-resume routines,
which would be a simpler solution.
