A huge hint, if a driver has to call a sysfs_* call, something is wrong.

Something is wrong here.

Why are you messing around with a kobject?  This is a device, that you
control, you can just set the default attribute group for it and then
the driver core will add and remove the sysfs group at the proper time,
in the proper way.  Right now you are racing userspace and loosing.

Use the default group list, that is what it is there for.
