Sounds to me more like what we want is to make the module_get() and
module_put() calls conditional to avoid the NULL pointer dereference.
Another common variant that I've seen in other subsystems is to make
drivers pass in an owner explicitly via some operations structure to
allow more fine-grained control over the reference count.

In this particular case one option to do this would be to add a struct
module *owner field to usb_role_switch_desc and that's copied to struct
usb_role_switch in usb_role_switch_register() so that that can be used
for reference counting (perhaps with the current code as fallback).

That would allow using simple devices (i.e. not bound to a driver) to
work with this framework as well.
