Subject: [PATCH 3.13 151/187] powerpc/pci: Reorder pci bus/bridge unregistration during PHB removal -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Tyrel Datwyler <>

commit 7340056567e32b2c9d3554eb146e1977c93da116 upstream.

Commit bcdde7e made __sysfs_remove_dir() recursive and introduced a BUG_ON
during PHB removal while attempting to delete the power managment attribute
group of the bus. This is a result of tearing the bridge and bus devices down
out of order in remove_phb_dynamic. Since, the the bus resides below the bridge
in the sysfs device tree it should be torn down first.

This patch simply moves the device_unregister call for the PHB bridge device
after the device_unregister call for the PHB bus.

Fixes: bcdde7e221a8 ("sysfs: make __sysfs_remove_dir() recursive")
