[driver-core PATCH v8 2/9] driver core: Establish order of operations for device_add and device_del via bitflag




Add an additional bit flag to the device struct named "dead".

This additional flag provides a guarantee that when a device_del is
executed on a given interface an async worker will not attempt to attach
the driver following the earlier device_del call. Previously this
guarantee was not present and could result in the device_del call
attempting to remove a driver from an interface only to have the async
worker attempt to probe the driver later when it finally completes the
asynchronous probe call.
