There is a fifth case, but it's crazy.

The tty has been properly shutdown and destroyed because the tty file handle
was closed, not hungup. The rfcomm device reference was properly put
when the tty was released.

But when the remote hangs up (and sends disc), then rfcomm_dev_state_change()
is called -- to kill the port reference (thus the rfcomm device) that was
instantiated locally! Ridiculous. Doubly ridiculous because it's the local
port shutdown that closes the dlc locally that sends the disconnect (and sets
the local dlc state) that triggers the received rfcomm_dev_state_change()!

If this behavior is desirable (or necessary because it's been exposed to
userspace), then why was the design ever reference-counted to begin with?
