This sequence is asking for trouble: having to remember to release two
separate references at once.

Logically what should happen is that the reference seems to be on
scsi_dh_data->sdev, so it should be taken when that's initialised and
put in scsi_dh_handler_cleanup ... so no-one has to worry about
forgetting it.
