The interesting bits..

[ 46.075145] cpufreq-core: trying to register driver centrino

here we've done sysdev_driver_register(&cpu_sysdev_class,&cpufreq_sysdev_driver);
(see cpufreq_register_driver in drivers/cpufreq/cpufreq.c)
This is the only place we register sysdev entries.

[ 46.075155] cpufreq-core: adding CPU 0
[ 46.075163] speedstep-centrino: found unsupported CPU with Enhanced SpeedStep: send /proc/cpuinfo to cpufreq@lists.linux.org.uk
[ 46.075167] cpufreq-core: initialization failed

this ENODEVs

[ 46.075173] cpufreq-core: adding CPU 1
[ 46.075176] cpufreq-core: initialization failed

Same for the 2nd CPU.

[ 46.075180] cpufreq-core: no CPU initialized for driver centrino

here we hit this part of cpufreq_register_driver

/* if all ->init() calls failed, unregister */
if (ret) {
dprintk("no CPU initialized for driver %s\n",
driver_data->name);
sysdev_driver_unregister(&cpu_sysdev_class,
&cpufreq_sysdev_driver);


So we release all the refs.


[ 46.075185] cpufreq-core: unregistering CPU 0
[ 46.075190] cpufreq-core: unregistering CPU 1

These are the sysdev callbacks.

[ 47.081642] speedstep-lib: x86: f, model: 6

These drivers don't even get as far as calling cpufreq_register_driver,
they ENODEV way before things get that far along.

[ 47.267635] WARNING: at drivers/base/sys.c:173 sysdev_driver_register+0x34/0xce()

Boom. I'm really puzzled. At this point, we shouldn't have any leaked refs
on the objects. Needs more thinking.
