This is the counterpart to cba767175becadc5c4016cceb7bfdd2c7fe722f4.
Device is not registered using dev_t, so it should not be destroyed
using device_destroy which looks up the device by dev_t. This will fail
and adding the device again will fail with the "duplicate name" error.
This is fixed using device_unregister instead of device_destroy.
