Yes, that match my first thought, but i didn't know the exact way to notify scsi side to destroy
itself but scsi_host_put() which already called once in below chains:

 -> srp_queue_remove_work()
    -> srp_remove_target()
       -> scsi_remove_host()
       -> scsi_host_put()

that means scsi_host_dev is still referenced by other components that we have to notify.

I originally thought that srp_remove_one was called from put_device(ibdev) ,  so increase its ref_count can avoid it being released early.
