[media] drivers/media/media-device: fix double free bug in _unregister()
While removing all interfaces in media_device_unregister(), all media_interface pointers are freed. This is illegal and results in double kfree() if any media_interface is still linked at this point; maybe because a userspace process still has a file handle. Once the process closes the file handle, dvb_media_device_free() gets called, which frees the dvb_device.intf_devnode again. This patch removes the unnecessary kfree() call, and documents who's responsible for really freeing it.
