Do you mean even parent pci device is removed immediately, the code has
to wait, like dma etc?
Currently parent driver has to ensure all dma stopped then call
ie, after uacce_fops_open succeed, parent driver need wait fops_release,
then uacce_remove can be called.
If remove this wait , there may other issue,
Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address ffff80000b700204
pc : hisi_qm_cache_wb.part.0+0x2c/0xa0
So uacce only need serialize uacce_fops_open and uacce_remove.
After uacce_fops_open, we can assume uacce_remove only happen after
Then it would be much simpler.
