Subject: [PATCH 1/7] usbnet: remove usb_get/put_dev in .probe and .disconnect

usb_device is parent device of usb_interface in the view of driver
model, so its reference count is always held during .probe/.disconnect
of usb_interface instance.

This patch just removes the unnecessay usb_get/put_dev.
