    You're right that the class device isn't currently unregistered, and
    that was an oversight in the patch I originally sent. Attatched is a
    patch that remedies that situation. pci_remove_bus_device() *is* the
    natural place to unregister the class_dev, and that's just what the
    patch does.

    Yep. The patch pulls the kfree() out of pci_remove_bus_device() and
    calls class_device_unregister() in it's place. This will put() the
    bridge device and free the pci_bus as needed. put() does need to be
    called twice because the bridge device is get()'d twice: once when the
    device is registered and once when it's bus device grabs a reference to it.
