  kobject: Make sure the parent does not get released before its children (2020-05-21 11:01:27 +0200)

Driver core / kobject fixes for 5.7-rc7

Here are 3 small driver core and kobject fixes for 5.7-rc7

The kobject fix resolves a bug that the should not normally ever be hit,
but the kunit tests were hitting pretty regularly.  It's been reviewed
and tested by a bunch of people and stared at by me for a long time, so
it should be good.

The driver core fixes are small ones for reported problems with the
device link code that came in 5.7-rc1.

All of these have been in linux-next with no reported issues.
