But you are creating a globally exported function that can be called
from anywhere, and as such, is not useful because it has no locking or
hints of how to use it correctly at all.

Again, don't push this "solution" down to sysfs to solve, you know if
you have a device that is not cleaned up yet, so don't try to
rename/create a device of the same name before that is finished.
