Also, in detach, drivers are supposed to wait for all their references
to go away before returning.  If they have any threads running, it is
their job to clean them up, etc.  This means, however, that cam PC
Card and CardBus drivers have issues detaching (since CAM has issues
detaching SIMs).  Hopefully your work with CAM will help this
situation, and I look forward to it.

Having a virtual driver that attaches to the physical driver, like we
talked about in IRC, wouldn't violate those assumptions.
