btw I looked at your patch, and isn't that just reducing the race window?

I think we have a very similar problem in drm, where the
drm_dev_register() for the overall device (which also registers all
drm_connector) can race with the hotplug of an individual connector in
drm_connector_register() which is hotplugged at runtime.

I went with a per-connector registered boolean + a lock to make sure
that really only one of the two call paths can end up registering the
connector. Part of registering connectors is setting up sysfs files,
so I think it's exactly the same problem as here.

Cheers, Daniel
