As this is just sysfs saying "Hey dummy, you are trying to do something
foolish here", what would be the better thing for it to do?

Just printk(KERN_WARNING...) and then dump the stack?

It seems the WARN_ON() that is currently being used is being treated as
an "error" by your testing, when really it isn't, unless the caller can
not handle the error being passed back up to it by the sysfs core.
Which it should, but I don't think you are even giving it the chance as
you are:

> Kernel panic - not syncing: panic_on_warn set ...

Yup, panic_on_warn :(

ideas to make this easier for you?

thanks,
