This runs into trouble with btrfs_rm_device(), I've been triggering
crashes with btrfs/101 here.

The problem is that by the time we get around to running
btrfs_delete_unused_bgs(), btrfs_rm_device() has long since free'd the

I thought about calling btrfs_delete_unused_bgs() directly from
btrfs_rm_device(), but it might bail out without returning an error for
