The following patch should avoid the sysfs_remove_dir() oops you are
seeing while device removal. It anyway fixes the obvious error and is
needed. But it will not make any change to the first error you are
seeing while connecting the device.

Andrew, Greg, please include this.

Thanks
Maneesh


o Following patch avoids the sysfs_remove_dir() oops when it is passed
a kobject with NULL dentry.
