I'm fine with it.

Right, I forgot that sysfs was still optional.  Below is the patch on
top of yours to add this conditional to a few other places.

As a matter of fact that's what I hoped for :)

Maybe it should better be "esi", to match the name in struct atm_dev?

Besides, I've encountered a problem with hotplug being called from
atm_dev_register: the device actually becomes usable only when the
driver sets .dev_data, which may happen after hotplug has been called.
E.g. if I call br2684ctl in my hotplug script, and it happens to attempt
to open a socket on the device before .dev_data is set, br2684ctl fails
(rather disgracefully BTW, forgetting to cleanup nasX).  I had to work
around it by adding a sleep for a couple of seconds to the hotplug
script, and hoping that was enough for the driver to complete
initializing atm_dev.  I suspect the only way to fix it is to split the
atm_dev initialization into two stages, allocation and registration, as
it is done for net_device.
