So we refcount ctx once for the invoke function and once between send
and callback. And this fastrpc_context_put() would counter the fact that
rpmsg_send() failed, so we will not get the "remote's" put().

I think that if you moved this call inside fastrpc_invoke_send() it's
relationship to the failing rpmsg_send() would be obvious.
