I spent some time looking at this, and I don't think that's what is
happening.

I think that i2c_del_driver() in cleanup_ipmi_ssif() is causing
i2c_unregister_device() to be called on all the devices, and
platform_driver_unregister() causes it to be called on the
devices that came in through the platform method.  It's
a double-free.

Try reversing the order of i2c_del_driver() and platform_driver_unregister()
in cleanup_ipmi_ssif() to test this.
