Actually calling nvkm_object_fini() is probably fine.  It just screws
around with the registers and it's probably fine if we do that twice.

Calling .dtor() when .ctor() fails is actually required because .ctor
doesn't clean up after itself.

So this patch is not required.  The other patch is required.

In the end, I had to give up on fixing the hang and downgrade to
debian's long term support version of firefox.
