I think that is still racy..


unregister: sysfs_init:

mutex_lock(&pmus_lock);
list_del_rcu(&pmu->entry);
mutex_unlock(&pmus_lock);

synchronize_*rcu();

mutex_lock(&pmus_lock);
list_for_each_entry(pmu, &pmus, entry) {
/* add device muck */
/* will _NOT_ see our PMU */
}
pmus_bus_running = 1;
mutex_unlock(&pmus_lock);

mutex_lock(&pmus_lock);
if (pmu_bus_running) {
device_del() /* OOPS */


What you want is to read pmu_bus_running in the same pmus_lock section
as we do the list_del, and then use that local copy later.
