Mainline panics easily upon module removal: 

$ modprobe musb_am335x
$ modprobe musb_dsps

Here you insert something to the USB

$ modprobe musb_am335x -r ... bang! the kernel panics.

It works fine if you remove the musb_dsps and musb_am335x in that order,
but the dependency is not enforced anywhere.

So I guess preventing the module removal should be fine for now.
In that case, mind testing/acking/whatever this patch:
