I thought I rejected it in the past, don't have my email archives
around at the moment, sorry.

Why would a single call to this function remove an id?  That seems
really wrong, you should be able to call get and put on a device
numerous times, only the "last" reference should cause the device to be
cleaned up.

Shouldn't this be in the release function instead?
