[dm-devel] [2.6.29 PATCH 01/02] dm target: use module refcount directly



From: Cheng Renquan <crquan gmail com>

The tt_internal's 'use' field is superfluous: the module's refcount can do
the work properly.  An acceptable side-effect is that this increases the
reference counts reported by 'lsmod'.

Remove the superfluous test when removing a target module.
