Is it because the refcounted klist_del() in device_release_driver()
doesn't actually delete the device from the list until the
driver_detach() advances to the next entry, so that
device_release_driver() is re-entered for the disconnect()-ed interface?

These klists are real fun to deal with :(  I don't seem to have an idea
on how to handle that...

Well, at least omitting the disconnect()-ed interface explicitly in
disconnect() should work.  I'll try to check that...
