Eeek, you just broke userspace tools that now can no longer see these
entries :(

Why do you need to create a subdirectory?  As you found out, doing so
isn't the easiest, right?  That is on purpose.

I really wouldn't recommend doing this at all, please stick within the
'struct device' framework here, don't create new kobjects and hang sysfs
files off of them.
