I'm not certain, but this seems unwise.

After hfi1_verbs_unregiser_sysfs() returns there should be no sysfs left
under the ibdev as we are going to delete the ibdev sysfs next.

kobject_del() triggers synchronous delete of the sysfs, while
kobject_put() potentially defers it to the future.

Will ib unregister fail if the kobject_del() has not happened yet? I
am unsure.
