The timer itself comes simply from the delayed_work that is used to
delay the freeing of the kobject.

So that is not the surprising part.

The surprising part is that I don't see parport_pc doing anything
odd/bad with its kobject embedded in the 'struct dev'. It seems to
just do a platform_device_register_simple() followed by a

At least that's true for the normal parport_pc_probe_port() case that
just passes in a NULL dev... But I only glanced at the driver, so I
might have missed something.

Ok. The list corruption (which also pointed at parport_pc) might well
be corrupted by removing the entries before or after the parport_pc,
and moving the corruption to parport_pc that way (through the
"prev->next = next" thing in list handling). So maybe it was something
else all along. You could enable CONFIG_DEBUG_LIST to see if that
triggers some dump earlier..
