Ok, that's a mess.

This kernel warning is there for the developer to say "hey, you did
something dumb, fix your code", but then sysfs recovers and moves on as
it's not a fatal error at all.

I think this goes back to your other email about "how do we detect a
real error warning or not".  Right now we don't have a way to
distinguish between warnings like this (where the kernel core is telling
higher layers to not do foolish things, but it is a recoverable issue),
or where a "real" warning happens that can cause real problems with the
continued operation of the kernel.

I don't know what to suggest here, maybe some way to distinguish between
the two would make it easier for automated tests like what you are
doing?  Some different type of WARN_ON_DEVLOPER_IS_STUPID() message?
