Subject[patch 09/29] dmaengine: fix broken device refcounting

2.6.23-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let us
know.

------------------
From: Haavard Skinnemoen <hskinnemoen@atmel.com>

patch 348badf1e825323c419dd118f65783db0f7d2ec8 in mainline.

When a DMA device is unregistered, its reference count is decremented twice
for each channel: Once dma_class_dev_release() and once in
dma_chan_cleanup(). This may result in the DMA device driver's remove()
function completing before all channels have been cleaned up, causing lots
of use-after-free fun.

Fix it by incrementing the device's reference count twice for each
channel during registration.
