A couple of people ran into that. It was a latent bug triggered by
some changes of mine. Here's the patch.


commit a2ab909933f8c8623282979dfa64f3e358bdb9fc
Author: Andi Kleen <ak@gargoyle.(none)>

Make scheduler sysfs attributes sysdev class devices

They are really class devices, but were incorrectly declared. This leads
to crashes with the recent changes that makes non normal sysdevs
use a different prototype.
