    To me it seems better to keep this as is, to be
    used by .probe and .release methods, in the same way
    usb_get_dev() and usb_put_dev() are used by usb drivers.

    Hiding refcounts under the resource accessors will just
    complicate things unnecessarily. Modifying refcounts
    should always be explicit unless there's a very good
    reason against it.
