Subject: [PATCH v2] ubi: don't decrease ubi->ref_count on detach error

If attempting to detach a UBI device while it is still busy, detaching
is refused. However, the reference counter is still being decreased
despite the error. Rework detach function to only decrease the reference
counter once all conditions for detachment are met.

Fixes: cdfa788acd13 ("UBI: prepare attach and detach functions")

v2: also catch negative ref_count and add ubi_assert as suggested
