device_add_disk() will only call bdi_register_owner() if
!GENHD_FL_HIDDEN, so it follows that del_gendisk() should only call
bdi_unregister() if !GENHD_FL_HIDDEN.

Found with code inspection.  bdi_unregister() won't do any harm if
bdi_register_owner() wasn't used but best to avoid the unnecessary
call to bdi_unregister().
