I'm almost afraid to ask what you want to export to userspace for a
workqueue that userspace would care about...

If you create a subsystem, the devices will show up under the virtual
"bus" if you don't give them a parent, so this patch shouldn't be
needed, unless you are abusing the driver model. What am I missing
here?

thanks,
