V4L/DVB (11044): v4l2-device: add v4l2_device_disconnect
Call v4l2_device_disconnect when the parent of a hotpluggable device disconnects. This ensures that you do not have a pointer to a device that is no longer present. Signed-off-by: Hans Verkuil <hverkuil@xs4all.nl> Signed-off-by: Mauro Carvalho Chehab <mchehab@redhat.com>
