That's really not a good idea, trying to grab your own module reference
is considered racy and we stopped adding that code pattern to the kernel
a long time ago.

What's wrong if you remove the vhci module if devices are attached? You
can do that today for any other USB host driver, this shouldn't be
"special".

Also, kernel modules are never automatically removed by the system, so
someone has to do this by hand, so they knew what they were doing :)

thanks,
