The original order is correct, but what I missed is that for drivers that release
(free) everything in the videodev release callback the v4l2_device struct is
also freed and v4l2_device_put will fail.

To fix this, add this code just before the vdev->release call:

/* Do not call v4l2_device_put if there is no release callback set. */
if (v4l2_dev->release == NULL)
v4l2_dev = NULL;
If there is no release callback, then the refcounting is pointless anyway.

This should work.

Hans
