Subject[PATCH 1/2] vmbus: unregister device_obj->channels_kset
Date
From: Dexuan Cui <decui@microsoft.com>

Fixes: c2e5df616e1a ("vmbus: add per-channel sysfs info")

Without the patch, a device can't be thoroughly destroyed, because
vmbus_device_register() -> kset_create_and_add() still holds a reference
to the hv_device's device.kobj.
