I still cannot reproduce this lockdep issue, even using your
.config with an e1000e device on an x86_64 kernel. :(

I tried removing the endpoint, an intermediate bridge device, and
the parent bus. I don't know what I'm doing wrong...

Can you please try this patch though, and see if it fixes the
warning? It applies on top of my other sysfs patch that
introduces a mutex in sysfs_schedule_callback.

Thanks.
