[PATCH] PCI: hv: Fix a use-after-free bug in hv_eject_device_work()

The commit 05f151a73ec2 itself is correct, but it exposes this
use-after-free bug, which is caught by some memory debug options.

Add the Fixes tag to indicate the dependency.

Sorry for not spotting the bug when sending 05f151a73ec2. 

Now I have enabled the mm debug options to help catch such mistakes in future.
