Subject: Re: 2.6.24-rc4-mm1 kobject changes broken with hvcs driver on powerpc

This patch works fine with _changes_ on 2.6.24-rc4. I can confirm that
it's not a kref problem in that case. This patch still assumes that
kref_get() returns a value. This is no longer true. The kref_get() call
site needs to be changed.
