All new sysfs files will need a Documentation/ABI/ patch as well to
explain the files.

These are all single value files, which is fine.
This isn't. sysfs files are "one value per file". If you want to do
something else, like this file, I suggest using debugfs instead.

Actually, why not use debugfs for all of these files? They aren't
really necessary for any user or tool, and are only a debugging thing.
That's what debugfs was created for :)
