This is the bug. destroy_serial() is for the usb_serial core and does
not clean up for this type of structure (and is not exported, so it will
not even build properly). Also, never put a function prototype within a
function like you did here.

So, I'm guessing you didn't try to remove any USB devices after applying
your patch? :)

thanks,
