Good catch. I guess as it was in the shutdown path it failed the
unlock silently.

I would prefer a different fix. If w1_process_callbacks was more of a
public facing API called from multiple locations where the caller
doesn't have access to the locks, something like this would probably
be the way to go. This is called from two areas of the code, and not
likely to be called from any new areas in the future.

Adding a documentation comment is good. I would be tempted in
__w1_remove_master_device to move the dev->list_mutex down after the
while loop, but I can't be sure that whatever has a refcnt wouldn't
need list_mutex. The last w1_process_callbacks after the while loop
shouldn't be needed I wouldn't think, I was just being defensive. By
the time it completes the while loop the reference count is 0 so there
shouldn't be anything left for it to process and if there is, it's a
race condition and game over anyway. So just sandwich
w1_process_callbacks with the lock/unlock in
__w1_remove_master_device please.

Was this found with code inspection or hardware testing with lock
debugging enabled?
