Subject[patch 097/123] USB: Move hcd free_dev call into usb_disconnect to fix oops
2.6.33-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

-----------------
From: Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au>

commit f7410ced7f931bb1ad79d1336412cf7b7a33cb14 upstream.

USB: Move hcd free_dev call into usb_disconnect

I found a way to oops the kernel:

1. Open a USB device through devio.
2. Remove the hcd module in the host kernel.
3. Close the devio file descriptor.

The problem is that closing the file descriptor does usb_release_dev
as it is the last reference. usb_release_dev then tries to invoke
the hcd free_dev function (or rather dereferencing the hcd driver
struct). This causes an oops as the hcd driver has already been
unloaded so the struct is gone.

This patch tries to fix this by bringing the free_dev call earlier
and into usb_disconnect. I have verified that repeating the
above steps no longer crashes with this patch applied.
