Your problem isn't the dynamic fb vs. embedded fb for fbdev (you're
already using drm_framebuffer_unregister_private to handle that). Your
problem is you're not shutting down stuff on driver unload, which
means the fb is still in use. drm_atomic_helper_shutdown() takes care
of that for atomic drivers.

No idea anymore what to do for legacy code, probably need to open code
a shutdown sequence. Definitely not the above.
