NAME

       get_device - increment reference count for device.

SYNOPSIS

       struct device * get_device  (struct device * dev);

ARGUMENTS

       dev    device.

DESCRIPTION

       This simply forwards the call to kobject_get, though we do take care to
       provide for the case that we get a NULL pointer passed in.
