SubjectRe: [PATCH] drm/sysfs: Do not drop device reference twice
From

I started investigating this problem yesterday and reached the same
conclusion. The connector path can be easily reproduced on i915.ko:
get a machine that has an eDP panel, physically disconnect the panel,
boot the machine, "modprobe i915" and watch the segfault.

I didn't really bisect, but I believe this is probably a regression
from "drm/sysfs: sort out minor and connector device object
lifetimes".

And kudos to whoever invented CONFIG_DEBUG_KOBJECT :)
