I find a problem when move usb_debugfs_init() and usb_debugfs_cleanup()
into usb common, it's easy to create "usb" directory, but difficult to
cleanup it:

common/common.c

struct dentry *usb_debugfs_init(void)
{
    if (!usb_debug_root)
        usb_debug_root = debugfs_create_dir("usb", NULL);

    return usb_debug_root;
}

void usb_debugfs_cleanup(void)
{
    debugfs_remove_recursive(usb_debug_root);
    usb_debug_root = NULL;
}

core/usb.c

static void usb_core_debugfs_init(void)
{
    struct dentry *root = usb_debugfs_init();

    debugfs_create_file("devices", 0444, root, NULL,
&usbfs_devices_fops);
}

static int __init usb_init(void)
{
    ...
    usb_core_debugfs_init();
    ...
}

static void __exit usb_exit(void)
{
    ...
    usb_debugfs_cleanup();
    // will be error, gadget may use it.
    ...
}

gadget/udc/core.c

static int __init usb_udc_init(void)
{
    ...
    usb_debugfs_init();
    ...
}

static void __exit usb_udc_exit(void)
{
    ...
    usb_debugfs_cleanup();
    // can't cleanup in fact, usb core may use it.
}

How to handle this case? introduce a reference count? do you have any
suggestion?

Thanks a lot
