Ok, so in the pci bus probe function, if the driver that successfully
binds to the device is of this type, then create the sysfs files.

The driver core will properly emit a KOBJ_BIND message when the driver
is bound to the device, so userspace knows it is now safe to rescan the
device to see any new attributes.

Here's some horrible pseudo-patch for where this probably should be
done:


diff --git a/drivers/pci/pci-driver.c b/drivers/pci/pci-driver.c

 	if (rc < 0) {

 		pm_runtime_put_sync(dev);




Add some proper error handling if device_add_groups() fails, and then do
the same thing to remove the sysfs files when the device is unbound from
the driver, and you should be good to go.

Or is this what you all are talking about already and I'm just totally
confused?

thanks,
