I made a bunch of patches fixing this yesterday. It's available here:

https://git.linuxtv.org/hverkuil/media_tree.git/log/?h=cec-refcnt

I haven't posted anything since I had no chance to test it with actual
hardware. But if you have hardware and are able to verify that this
solves the issue, then please let me know so that I can get this merged.

Regards,

Hans
