I've checked the kernel logs and was unable to find anything
suspicious. This does not seem to happen on vanilla, its a mm only

The device becomes a regular file, and udev seems to forget about it..
even if I replug in the device, udev will not touch this file. It
also seems to have trouble recreating the node even when the file has
been deleted

Hope that helps,
