The trace here is fairly simple, but I don't understand how this could

The kvm_get_kvm is done within kvm_ioctl_create_device, which is called
from ioctl; the last reference cannot disappear inside a ioctl, because:

1) kvm_ioctl is called from vfs_ioctl, which does fdget and holds the fd
reference until after kvm_vm_ioctl returns

2) the file descriptor holds one reference to the struct kvm*, and this
reference is not released until kvm_vm_release is called by the last
fput (which could be fdput's call to fput if the process has exited in
the meanwhile)

3) for completeness, in case anon_inode_getfd fails, put_unused_fd will
not invoke the file descriptor's ->release callback (in this case

CCing some random people to get their opinion...
