Something presumably in the rose code is leaking a reference to the rose
device.  That is probably a separate bug than your other one, but it may
be related.  These are some of my least favorite bugs to track down.

That said in rose there is only one call to dev_hold and only one call
to dev_put.

Hmm.  Looking at it dev_hold happens in rose_dev_get, and of which there
are several callers and only one of those callers calls dev_put.  So
it should just be a matter of adding some more dev_put calls in the
appropriate places.

The usage in rose_loopback_timer looks easy to fix, the usage in
rose_bind seems more of a challenge.

Are you enough of a developer to take that observation and look at
the code and fix it?
