From: Jiang Liu <jiang.liu@huawei.com>

When cpci_hp_stop() is called to disabled cpcihp controller, it will disable
interrupt for that controller. But there's small window for event_thread()
to reenable the interrupt again. So stop the worker thread before disabling
the interrupt.

If check_slots() returns error, ther working thread (cpci_thread) will exit.
Later when cpci_stop_thread() or cpci_hp_intr() tries to access cpci_thread,
it may have already been destroyed. So hold a reference count to cpci_thread
to avoid invalid memory access.
