I don't think it's correct to try to remove the driver while async
probing is in progress and we shouldn't work around it from individual
drivers. I think we already have enough async barriers to prevents
this under normal operation - there's full synchronization during boot
before control gets passed to userland and module unloading does full
async flushing too. What we should do, probably, is to make the debug
code do full async flush before test unloading the driver.
