The try_module_get() and module_put() is a result of review feedback from
my side. The ap bus core is static in the kernel whereas the
vfio dd is a kernel module. So there may be a race condition between
calling the callback function and removal of the vfio dd module.
There is similar code in zcrypt_api which does the same for the zcrypt
device drivers before using some variables or functions from the modules.
Help me, it this is outdated code and there is no need to adjust the
module reference counter any more, then I would be happy to remove
this code :-)
