firewire: move fw_device reference counting from drivers to core
fw_unit device drivers invariably need to talk to the fw_unit's parent (an fw_device) and grandparent (an fw_card). firewire-core already maintains an fw_card reference for the entire lifetime of an fw_device. Likewise, let firewire-core maintain an fw_device reference for the entire lifetime of an fw_unit so that fw_unit drivers don't have to. Signed-off-by: Stefan Richter <stefanr@s5r6.in-berlin.de>
