In principle the put_device and corresponding get_device calls aren't
needed. We don't release a usb_device structure until after disabling all
its endpoints, and disabling an endpoint will wait until all the URBs for
that endpoint have completed. So there's no reason to keep a reference to
the device structure for each URB.
I see that uhci-hcd is guilty of the same thing (reference acquired for
each QH, released while holding a spinlock). Probably each of the
host controller drivers is.
