I'm actually now thinking that the suggestion about the module-count
wasn't very correct because this won't really help in regards to
mxt_update_fw_store() / mxt_remove() racing.

I see that mxt_remove() already invokes the mxt_sysfs_remove(), which
should block until mxt_update_fw_store() is completed, shouldn't it?

I guess the kfree(data) isn't the real cause of the problem and
something like this should help:
