> Instead of returning the struct group_device and then later freeing it, do
> the entire free under the group->mutex and defer only putting the
> iommu_group.
> It is safe to remove the sysfs_links and free memory while holding that
> mutex.
> Move the sanity assert of the group status into
> __iommu_group_free_device().
> The next patch will improve upon this and consolidate the group put and
> the mutex into __iommu_group_remove_device().
> __iommu_group_free_device() is close to being the paired undo of
> iommu_group_add_device(), following patches will improve on that.
