    the scsi device does its refcounting through the generic device (and
    hence the kobject), so scsi_device_get() does get a handle on the
    kobject for you (as well as doing some checks with the SCSI state model
    and getting a handle on the underlying module).

    I'm not too sure about this...exporting such a function might be seen as
    encouraging further abuse...
