    I agree that the patch allowing device_move(dev, NULL) is non-trivial,
    but the one removing the useless device_is_registered() check should be
    straightforward enough.

    If removing the device_is_registered() check helps you, I'd lobby for
    the inclusion of that part (and leave device_move(dev, NULL) for
    post-2.6.20). (It should help for devices with no bus; for my use case,
    everything worked fine.)
