Revert "driver core: refcounting fix"
This reverts commit 63ce18cfe685115ff8d341bae4c9204a79043cf0. It was the incorrect fix and causes a reference counting bug whenever any driver module is removed from the system. Mike Galbraith <efault@gmx.de> is looking for the real fix for his problem. Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@suse.de>
