The only thing I can think of for this is that ib_register_driver()
is racing with __ib_unregister_device() and took the special error

I suspect this is not a bug, but over complexity triggering a
pre-condition WARN_ON..

Maybe the solution is to swap the dealloc_driver = NULL for some other flag.
