Please CC: this kind of stuff to the driver core maintainer, otherwise
it can get dropped...

Anyway, comments below:

Comment really isn't needed.

If you are going to create function comments, at least use the proper
kerneldoc format.

You don't provide function prototype for when CONFIG_HOTPLUG is not
enabled.

How can this happen?

All of sysfs and the driver core are EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL(). Please follow
that convention.

Are you sure no one calls this?

Why?

__devinit is not needed on a function prototype.

Not needed for a function prototype.
