I can confirm this. hci_uart_set_proto() opens the proto before it
registers the hci device. Hence, we should also unregister the hci
device before closing the proto. I also looked whether this introduces
other race conditions but no proto-callback can be called here as they
are all protected by the tty-layer which synchronizes all
tty-callbacks. Therefore, I think this is the correct fix.

We can apply this to stable even without the "destruct"-fixes from me
as hu->proto->$cb$() doesn't care whether hdev is valid or not. I
don't think the destruct-fixes are important enough to send them to
stable.
