Considered there isn't any protection between usbnet_disconnet and
wdm_open/wdm_close, you patch still doesn't work on the race, see
below:

   +       if (!dev)
   +               return 0;

            -> usbnet_disconnect() is triggered and completed here, so
            dev may point to a freed usbnet instance.

             return qmi_wwan_manage_power(dev, on);

One fix I can think of is to export wdm_mutex or its lock/unlock
functions, and introduce the function of qmi_wwan_disconnect, which
will call usbnet_disconnect with holding wdm_mutex.
