Yes please, that is way too subtle. Suggest:
NOTE: Callers must assume that userspace was able to open the cdev and
can call cdev fops callbacks at any time, even if this function fails.
I would also add a note to cdev_device_del:
NOTE: This guarantees that associated sysfs callbacks are not running
or runnable, however any open cdevs will remain and their fops remain
callable even after this returns.
Since I have seen a lot of confusion on that point as well..
Sure, I'll add that verbiage to a v3 sometime after rc1.
