What kernel version is this happening on? The -mm tree? Can you try
Linus's tree instead?

It looks like there was some needed information right before the first
stack dump, showing exactly what kobject was trying to be added that was
already present. Odds are this is a kernel parameter with the same name
as a duplicate one within the same module, but the trick is going to be
trying to figure out what module is causing this.

So it's not a sysfs bug, but rather a driver issue that this is

Does that make sense?
