No. Just a plug for not reinventing the wheel over and over again and
for using the work somebody else already did for you. If you use Fedora
or Ubuntu, or Suse, or Mandriva: their kernels don't suffer by these

But what I suggested above, is really most likely your problem. You need
to disable CONFIG_SYSFS_DEPRECATED_V2 and friends in the kernel. Even
though you apparently don't take hints from RH people seriously, you
should in this case.
