When cdev_del() returns there might be opened FDs pointing to your
i3cdev [1] ...

... and you call put_i3cdev() here which frees the i3cdev object,
leading to potential use-after-free if any of the fops (ioctl, read,
write) are called on those dangling FDs. That's exactly the kind of
nightmare I'd like to avoid.
