Smells like req->dev somehow managing to be NULL at that point, but that
doesn't make any sense - we get to devtmpfs_create_node() only from one
place, it sets req.dev to the argument it got from callers and that caller
would have oopsed itself before getting to that call with dev == NULL...

Could you stick a BUG_ON(!dev) in the beginning of handle_create() to see
if that's what somehow manages to happen?
