debug stuff should be in debugfs, not sysfs.

Also, any sysfs files that are created, need to be documented in
Documentation/ABI/.

This should be a simple module parameter, like almost all drivers have
it. That way it shows up in /sys/modules/aufs/ properly, as a boolean
value. No need to reinvent the wheel here.

NO IT CAN NOT!!!!
You are using sysfs wrong if you even think you are getting close to
PAGE_SIZE.

Please, use debugfs for this. sysfs is a "one value per file" type
filesystem. You should never be using the seqfile interface for a sysfs
file, that's a sure sign something is wrong in your design.

I think I'll stop reading now :(

thanks,
