Why not just look up the dentry and delete it when you want it with a
call to debugfs_lookup_and_remove() instead?  That way you don't have to
keep it around (hint, pass it back from your call to
pmc_mux_debugfs_init() or better yet, don't even have a
pmc_mux_debugfs_init() function as it only contains one line and is
only called in one place.

This will save you the storage space of this variable if debugfs is not
enabled in your kernel.  A small amount, yes, but it's nicer, right?
