Does that mean we should reset before the unlink (or before the second
part of it after the split up)?

I mean have a look at unassign_adapter_store() with all patches
of this series applied. It does an unlink but doesn't do any reset,
or cleanup IRQ resources. And after the unlink we can't clean up
the IRQ resources properly.

But before all this we should resolve this circular lock dependency
problem in a satisfactory way. I'm quite worried about how it is going
to mesh with this series and dynamic ap pass-through.
