So, this really shouldn't be here...

Don't bother, the kernel got seriously confused if this happens.

...probably what your release function should do is free the device
which should be dynamically allocated here, platform_device_alloc() will
do the right thing for you.  This isn't usually an issue for static
platform devices as they are registered from board files which can't be
unloaded.
