I think this is a duplication of what the struct device offers. Why
can't we use the generic infrastructure for this usecase?

Like using device_initialize() in qmp_probe() along with a release
callback for "struct device", then using get_device() in qmp_get().
Then there should also be a qmp_put() API which calls put_device() to
decrease the refcount.

Ideally, the final refcount should be dropped in qmp_remove() and then
the release callback will be called automatically to free "struct qmp".

How can someone remove the qmp device if a client is holding its reference?
