Subject: Re: [PATCH v6 01/11] firmware: raspberrypi: Keep count of all consumers

Quoting Nicolas Saenz Julienne (2020-12-11 08:47:50)
> When unbinding the firmware device we need to make sure it has no
> consumers left. Otherwise we'd leave them with a firmware handle
> pointing at freed memory.
> Keep a reference count of all consumers and introduce rpi_firmware_put()
> which will permit automatically decrease the reference count upon
> unbinding consumer drivers.
