Kernel panic on attempt to uninstall the client on macOS 10.14.4

Hi,

I installed both client/server via homebrew on two Macs/tried to use it for iPhone sharing, then decided to uninstall them (iPhone connection doesn't work).

First I tried "brew cask uninstall virtualhere" but apparently it did not remove the drivers.

Then I tried

"sudo /Users/<username>/Applications/VirtualHere.app/Contents/MacOS/VirtualHere --uninstall-service" followed by
"sudo /Users/<username>/Applications/VirtualHere.app/Contents/MacOS/VirtualHere --uninstall-drivers"

The first command kind of worked, but the second one apparently results in kernel panic (the Mac gets rebooted).

Is there a way to manually uninstall the drivers?

```
% ioreg|grep virtu
+-o com_virtualhere_root@1 <class com_virtualhere_root, id 0x100000117, !registered, !matched, active, busy 0 (4 ms), retain 5>
| +-o com_virtualhere_vhhcd <class com_virtualhere_vhhcd, id 0x10000011f, registered, matched, active, busy 0 (4 ms), retain 10>
```

Regards,

Hi, yes there is a bug uninstalling the driver in 10.14 but i cant fix it because it requires an uninstall :) so the workaround is basically just removing the vhhcd.kext directory sync then reboot. Thats how i will update the driver in the future when i needs to be updated.

sudo rm -rf /Library/Extensions/vhhcd.kext
sync

reboot
