Subject[PATCHv3 2/3] vfio/mdev: Avoid creating sysfs remove file on stale device removal
Date
If device is removal is initiated by two threads as below, mdev core
attempts to create a syfs remove file on stale device.
During this flow, below [1] call trace is observed.

cpu-0 cpu-1
----- -----
mdev_unregister_device()
device_for_each_child
mdev_device_remove_cb
mdev_device_remove
user_syscall
remove_store()
mdev_device_remove()
[..]
unregister device();
/* not found in list or
* active=false.
*/
sysfs_create_file()
..Call trace

Now that mdev core follows correct device removal system of the linux
bus model, remove shouldn't fail in normal cases. If it fails, there is
no point of creating a stale file or checking for specific error status.
