SubjectRe: [PATCH 148/196] Infiniband: make ipath driver use default driver groups.
So I think it is coming from the following code in ipath_sysfs.c:

int ipath_device_create_group(struct device *dev, struct ipath_devdata *dd)
int ret;

ret = sysfs_create_group(&dev->kobj, &dev_attr_group);
if (ret)
goto bail;

ret = sysfs_create_group(&dev->kobj, &dev_counter_attr_group);
if (ret)
goto bail_attrs;

sysfs_remove_group(&dev->kobj, &dev_counter_attr_group);
sysfs_remove_group(&dev->kobj, &dev_attr_group);
return ret;

note that the success path falls through into the error path and
removes the groups it just created, which means that on initialization
the groups are already removed, so we hit the BUG on the second try to
remove the groups on module exit.

And I think this chunk of your patch:

- snprintf(unit, sizeof(unit), "%02d", dd->ipath_unit);
- ret = sysfs_create_link(&dev->driver->kobj, &dev->kobj, unit);
- if (ret == 0)
- goto bail;

was what broke it. (Note the "if (ret == 0) then skip error
unwinding" code that got deleted by mistake -- not surprising given
how hard to read that construction is)

My bad for not testing -mm better. I'll queue this up to fix it:
