Do these errors actually affect your Xorg process?  I think I've seen 
them before, but IIRC they were only on the console where I did startx, 
but the gui was OK.

http://lists.x.org/archives/xorg-devel/2010-July/011317.html

The error message is in xorg-libs, src/linux_sysfs.c, about line 592.

The code says:

    /* FIXME: Should we report an error in this case?
     */

And only writes an error.  It continues from there.
