This patch fixes endless recursion, which happends when device has
more than one link.

If I'm not mistaken, this should not be necessary unless dev has a link
pointing to itself as a consumer.  That would be a bug, though.

I can add a WARN_ON() to catch this case, but then if there's a link from
a consumer of dev pointing back to dev as a consumer, that still will loop
forever.

I guess we need to detect circular dependencies and fail link creation in
such cases.  Oh well.

Thanks,
Rafael
