SubjectRe: [PATCH] driver core: ensure a device has valid node id in device_add()

Is this really a problem?

But as we do not know the node, can we cause more harm by randomly
picking one (i.e. putting it all in node 0)?

Again, is this going to cause more harm than good? What happens if we
leave it as "unknown", isn't that better than thinking we "know" it is
in node 0?
