This looks a bit odd...

ISTR that Christian suggested -EBUSY in a past revision of this series?
I think that would be more appropriate.

Also, I know we have discussed this before, but it is very hard to
figure out the offending device(s) if the sysfs manipulation failed. Can
we at least drop something into the syslog? That would be far from
perfect, but it gives an admin at least a chance to figure out why they
got an error. Some more structured way that would be usable from tools
can still be added later.
