Me too. The problem starts out at tty_register_driver():

if ( !(driver->flags & TTY_DRIVER_NO_DEVFS) ) {
for(i = 0; i < driver->num; i++)
tty_register_device(driver, i, NULL);

That NULL for the struct device* propagates all the way down to
class_hotplug_name() and bang. This bug is present in Linus's tree.

I assume that tty_register_driver is at fault, but will call in Greg for
