Subject[PATCH] sysfs: replace WARN() with pr_debug in sysfs_remove_group()
Date
There is no enough error handling in block device adding/registration
path, for example,

device_add_disk()
blk_register_queue()

When kernel returns from device_add_disk(), no return value to tell
us it was successful or not --- that suggests it would always succeed,
and according to this assumption, then during block device removal/
unregistration steps,

sd_remove()
del_gendisk()
blk_unregister_queue()

dpm_sysfs_remove(), blk_trace_remove_sysfs() will be called blindly,
though there is likely no 'trace' 'power' sysfs groups there because
actually blk_register_queue()/device_add() failed somewhere. thus
causes WARN flood emitted from sysfs_remove_group() as following triggered
by unloading fnic driver:

modprobe -rv fnic

While, refactoring block device code seems not valuable if just
because of above noisy but not so dangerous WARN flood.

So this patch suppress the warning flood by replacing WARN() with
pr_debug() as shortcut before refactoring all related block device
code.

This issue also could be reproduced with stable v4.12 kernel.
