I only had time to quickly glance at this.  I would like to review it very
closely, but that may need to wait a bit.

AFAICT: you still have a race condition between the time you release the core
lists lock and increment the client use count.  And speaking generally, it
seems to me there is some logic in i2c-i801 that could be moved to i2c-core.
