No. Don't abuse mutex for this.
Just make sure that the counters do not move when you call
reload_down/up().

The case I tried to point at is the driver instance, that does not
implement reload ops itself, but still it can be reloaded by someone else -
the other driver instance outside.

The counters should work no matter if the driver implements reload ops
or not. Why wouldn't they? The user still likes to know that the devices
was reloaded.
