I'm glad you noticed this because it is wonky today:

static ssize_t bind_store() {
        int err = -ENODEV;

        if (dev && dev->driver == NULL && driver_match_device(drv, dev)) {
               err = device_driver_attach() {
                    int ret = 0;
                    __device_driver_lock(dev, dev->parent);
                    if (!dev->p->dead && !dev->driver)
                           ..
                    return ret;
               }
        }
        return err;

Thus if dev->driver == NULL this will usually return -ENODEV unless it
races just right and returns 0. So I fixed it up to always return
-EBUSY and always read dev->driver under the lock.
