Recently, I encounted this issue again:
Oct 26 16:57:00 darkstar kernel: sysfs: duplicate filename
'acl00194FA4E517' can not be created

Oct 26 16:57:00 darkstar kernel: add_conn: Failed to register connection device
Seems same problem as before. This time, I just used several rfcomm
connections.
I think if we can add an atomic variable 'going_away' like this:
in hci_conn_del_sysfs:
before INIT_WORK;
atomic_set(&going_away, 1)

in del_conn:
after deleting completed
atomic_set(&going_away, 0)

in add_conn:
busy waiting the going_away
while (atomic_read(&going_away))
cpu_relax()
