Subject[PATCH 32/47] Driver core: add ability for devices to create and remove bin files
Date
From: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@suse.de>

Makes it easier for devices to create and remove binary attribute files
so they don't have to call directly into sysfs. This is needed to help
with the conversion from struct class_device to struct device.
