Should "this" perhaps be changed into "these"?

Please consider splitting that description into two sentences to enhance
clarity, e.g. "Parent device. Needed if the bus requires parent lock."

Same comment here.

Elsewhere in the driver core the word "manually" only appears in comments
above exported functions and functions that implement sysfs store methods.
Since device_driver_detach() is neither, I think the word "manually" should
not be used in the comment block above that function. But since the rest of
this patch looks fine to me, feel free to add:
