Then, we want to keep dev->name and dev->phys when calling "unregister" time.

If we want to keep dev->name and dev->phys when calling "unregister" time,
we could do something like below. Does calling kobject_uevent(KOBJ_REMOVE)
without dev->name and dev->phys (to some degree) help (compared to not
triggering kobject_uevent(KOBJ_REMOVE) at all) ?
