pvcalls_front_dev = NULL is set early to prevent most other functions
(connect, listen, etc) from proceeding.

On the other end, pvcalls_front_probe can continue safely in parallel
with pvcalls_front_remove to add a new frontend-backend connection
(which is not supported today anyway). pvcalls_front_probe would be
called with a different xenbus_device parameter.
