Well, it's adding complexity, the best fix is to let async only take
care of the pieces which can't fail, that way we don't need complex
error handling. The piece that slows probing isn't really the sysfs
appearances, it's the SCSI probing, and the last piece that needs error
handling is the device_add() for sysfs visibility, so that should be the
dividing line between sync and async.

This should restore the logical flow and fix all the error leg problems
(by eliminating the error legs).
