After looking at the control thread API use in recent changes, I noticed
that some thread resources are not properly released.
This series fixes two net drivers.

Additional notes:
- I noticed that event/dlb2 never kills/terminates its service thread.
  It means unplug of this device (if supported) would leak the associated
  thread resources. I leave it to this driver maintainer to comment/fix.

- The vhost library also lets a service thread in the background but since
  there is no way to unitialize this library, there is no leak to fix from
  my pov.
