You create a sysfs attribute without any Documentation/ABI/ update as
well? That's not good.

And why are you trying to emulate CPU hotplug here and not using the
existing CPU hotplug mechanism?

You just raced with userspace and lost. If you want to add attribute
files to a device, use the default attribute group list, and it will be
managed properly for you by the driver core.

Huge hint, if a driver every has to touch a kobject, or call sysfs_*,
then it is probably doing something wrong.
