I am concerned primarily about the lack of ability to get rid of such a
handle in a controlled fashion. The udev/device unload case is simply one
obvious way to exploit it.

I still don't believe O_NODE makes sense without revoke(), and even then
needs huge amounts of care on the device side of things.
