I just re-reviewed it, and it looks like the original commit is ok, so I
will drop this.

But ugh, this is horrid code, you should NOT be dealing with "raw"
kobjects here at all, just to try to make a subdirectory tree. That
causes a total mess as this function shows and probably should be
cleaned up sometime as obviously userspace tools are not properly seeing
the objects you are creating here (hint, you can not put a kobject below
a 'struct device' in the device tree and have udev and others see it

But that's a topic for a later time, dropping this now.
