genhd: Fix leaked module reference for NVME devices
Commit 8ddcd653257c "block: introduce GENHD_FL_HIDDEN" added handling of hidden devices to get_gendisk() but forgot to drop module reference which is also acquired by get_disk(). Drop the reference as necessary. Arguably the function naming here is misleading as put_disk() is *not* the counterpart of get_disk() but let's fix that in the follow up commit since that will be more intrusive.
