Subject[PATCH] hso: fix refcnt leak in recent patch.

Prior to
commit 29bd3bc1194c624ce863cab2a7da9bc1f0c3b47b
hso: fix crash when device disappears while serial port is open

hso_serial_open would always kref_get(&serial->parent->ref) before
returning zero.
Since that commit, it only calls kref_get when returning 0 if
serial->port.count was zero.

This results in calls to
kref_put(&serial->parent->ref, hso_serial_ref_free);

after hso_serial_ref_free has been called, which dereferences a freed

This patch adds the missing kref_get().
