I was assuming debugfs would always be removed from debugfs.c
using debugfs_remove_recursive(card->debugfs_root) but that
doesn't work for this case where we bin/unbind the block layer
interactively, sorry for missing it :(

Ulf: I think this can go in as an *early* fix as well, say after -rc1.

Yours,
Linus Walleij
