i'm too hunting use-after-free bugs - the ones fixed below fix certain
crashes, but i'm still seeing a nasty one.

Subject: fix platform_device_put/del mishaps
From: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>
this fixes drivers/char/pc8736x_gpio.c and drivers/char/scx200_gpio.c
to use the platform_device_del/put ops correctly.
