It turns out the reason for this error is simple: The driver
unregisters its subdevices in the release handler instead of in the
disconnect handler. There probably is documentation about this
somewhere, but I don't know exactly where -- maybe Greg remembers.

In the case of pvrusb2, the issues involve unregistering both the v4l2
device and the i2c device.
