In fact, it should be a general problem in usbnet, there are races
between usbnet_disconnect and .open/.close. Considered that
unregister_netdev, which will sync with .open/.close,  is called in
usbnet_disconnect,  the simplest fix is to move usb_set_intfdata(NULL)
after unregister_netdev.

Considered that usb_set_intfdata(NULL) will be called after
executing .disconnect in unbind path, it can be removed simply.

So how about the below?

diff --git a/drivers/net/usb/usbnet.c b/drivers/net/usb/usbnet.c
index e92c057..2eb9e1e 100644
--- a/drivers/net/usb/usbnet.c
+++ b/drivers/net/usb/usbnet.c
@@ -1286,7 +1286,6 @@ void usbnet_disconnect (struct usb_interface *intf)
 	struct net_device	*net;

 	dev = usb_get_intfdata(intf);
-	usb_set_intfdata(intf, NULL);
 	if (!dev)
 		return;
