Hi Mani,

I'm not sure if this was changed in your patches but MHI is supposed to give a
ul_callback() for any packet that is successfully queued. In the case of the
transfer failing, the ul_callback() should still be called so there should
be no refcount leaking. It is an essential assumption I made, if that no longer
holds true then the entire driver needs to be reworked.

Thanks,
Chris
