Driver core: Remove unneeded routines from driver core
This patch (as783) simplifies the driver core slightly by removing four unnecessary _get and _put methods. It is vital that when a driver is removed from its bus's klist of registered drivers, or when a device is removed from a driver's klist of bound devices, that the klist updates complete synchronously. Otherwise the kernel might try binding an unregistered driver to a newly-registered device, or adding a device to the klist for a new driver before it has been removed from the old driver's klist. Since the removals must be synchronous, they don't need to update any reference counts. Hence the _get and _put methods can be dispensed with.
