Hmm... stb0899 is not the only driver using detach:

drivers/media/dvb-frontends/stb0899_drv.c: .detach = stb0899_detach,
drivers/media/pci/saa7146/hexium_gemini.c: .detach = hexium_detach,
drivers/media/pci/saa7146/hexium_orion.c: .detach = hexium_detach,
drivers/media/pci/saa7146/mxb.c: .detach = mxb_detach,
drivers/media/pci/ttpci/av7110.c: .detach = av7110_detach,
drivers/media/pci/ttpci/budget-av.c: .detach = budget_av_detach,
drivers/media/pci/ttpci/budget-ci.c: .detach = budget_ci_detach,
drivers/media/pci/ttpci/budget-patch.c: .detach = budget_patch_detach,
drivers/media/pci/ttpci/budget.c: .detach = budget_detach,

Unfortunately, I don't have any device that would be affected by
this change, but it sounds risky to not call this code anymore:

#ifdef CONFIG_MEDIA_ATTACH
dvb_detach(release);
#endif

for .detach ops, as it has the potential of preventing unbind on
those drivers.

IMHO, the safest fix would be, instead, to do:

#ifdef CONFIG_MEDIA_ATTACH
symbol_get(stb0899_attach);
#endif

Btw, we have some code similar to that on other drivers
with either symbol_get() or symbol_put().

Yeah, I agree that this sucks. The right fix here is to use i2c high level
interfaces, binding it via i2c bus, instead of using the symbol_get()
based dvb_attach() macro.

We're (very) slowing doing such changes along the media subsystem.

Thanks,
Mauro
