Also wrong, you removed the creation of the links in sysfs.

The assignment to nowarn was there to avoid another compiler warning,
as sysfs_create_link() is marked __must_check.

I also went back to this one and made the following changes.. let me know if
it's wrong etc..

if it looks good, then I can resend it out.

Have you compile-tested this?
As sysfs_create_link() is marked __must_check, that will cause another compiler
warning, but only if CONFIG_SYSFS=y.

yeah I did compile test this. greping SYSFS I do have that enabled in the kernel just to make sure I reset the kernel compiled the warning showed up, thenI applied this patch and the warning was not there.
could be something different then.

Perhaps you can just mark the nowarn variable __unused?

sure.. I'll give that a try..
