Yes, on a quick look it seems that you should be using refcount_t type and not
atomic_t for your reference counter, as you use it as classical refcounter, i.e. 
free  the object upon reaching zero, etc:

static void vhba_device_put (struct vhba_device *vdev)
{
    if (atomic_dec_and_test(&vdev->refcnt)) {
        kfree(vdev);
    }
}

Any reason why you didn't use refcount_t type to begin with?

Best Regards,
Elena.
