What I mean is that if the USB device has not been *physically*
disconnected then its usb_device::state will not be
USB_STATE_NOTATTACHED. So rtl8152_disconnect() will not set the
RTL8152_UNPLUG flag and rtl8152_close() will still call napi_disable()
which will hang.

Some options to fix this:
- Add a separate flag which rtl8152_close() checks and
rtl8152_disconnect() always sets
- Call dev_close() before netif_napi_del()

Ben.
