Subject: [PATCH] iommu/amd: fix accounting of device_state

This patch fixes a bug in the accounting of the device_state.
In the current code, the device_state was put (decremented) too many times,
which sometimes lead to the driver getting stuck permanently in
put_device_state_wait(). That happen because the device_state->count would go
below zero, which is never supposed to happen.

The root cause is that the device_state was decremented in put_pasid_state()
and put_pasid_state_wait() but also in all the functions that call those
functions. Therefore, the device_state was decremented twice in each of these
code paths.

The fix is to decouple the device_state accounting from the pasid_state
accounting - remove the call to put_device_state() from the
put_pasid_state() and the put_pasid_state_wait())
